Moacir is a Brazilian man who has been living in Argentina for 25 years. He has spent the most part institutionalized in psychiatric hospitals. He is semi-illiterate and, despite his lack of any formal musical education, possesses an amazing talent for singing. This story follows Moacir’s passionate endeavor to fulfill his greatest desire: to make a record of his songs, which have been lost for more than 25 years.
