Macu, Jaiminho, and Pibe are childhood friends who grew up together in the outskirts of São Paulo. Much has changed when they finally reconnect: Macu still lives in the same neighborhood and is wrapped up with local gangsters; Jaiminho is a famous soccer player in Spain, and Pibe is an insurance salesman married to Macu’s ex-girlfriend. A surprise birthday party for Macu reunites the three friends who rekindle their friendship and come to terms with the direction their lives have taken. But unresolved affairs cause Macu to make a decision which will challenge his loyalty and can end someone's life.
