When the line between turth and lies is paper thin...a tragiccomedy by Brazil's preeminent playwright.
As a man lies dying from a hit-and-run accident on a busy Rio street, a male stranger comes to his aid and fulfills his dying wish for a kiss. An unscrupulous reporter, eager to feed a scandal hungry public, witnesses this kiss and turns a simple act of human compassion into salacious front-page news. While the Good Samaritan tries to hide from the tabloid spotlight, his enture life is turned into a media circus, leading to a shocking conclusion.
