Based on the book “ O Brasil dos gringos”, by Tunico Amâncio, the documentary shows the vision that world cinema has of Brazil through the films in which Brazil was a location, a theme or even a reference. Through interviews with  directors and screenwriters, the documentary reveals  the mechanisms that produce that image, the stories, motivations and/or pressures that are behind such films.
