From one side of town to the other, a gas truck interlaces people’s lives in a Brazilian metropole. A boy loses all his money and gets in trouble while hanging out with a group of street kids. A couple of lovers spend their last afternoon together. A gas vendor buys a ring for his girlfriend to prevent her from moving abroad. A girl gets molested outside school and decides to never tell it to anyone. Each of them has a problem to solve, a decision to make, a life to get along with. Rich or poor: they have to survive the day.
