Brás Cubas, who lived in the 19th century, is dead and, from the great beyond, reflects on his life and discovers that he was a rich man who had lived a mediocre life. His posthumous memories are populated by caricatures of people who make up the mosaic of an archaic and backward society, lacking in human reasoning, just like the Brazilian society of the second half of the 19th century, of which Brás Cubas was an exponent. The film is an adaptation of the homonymous work by Machado de Assis, one of the great names of Brazilian literature.
