After failing to be admitted into the renowned São Paulo Symphonic Orchestra, Laerte, a talented violinist, is forced to give music classes to teenagers in a public school in Heliopolis, the biggest favela of Brazil. His path is full of difficulties but the transforming power of music and the friendship arising between the professor and his students open the doors into a new world.
Based on a true story.
Jára has lost his job, his family is falling apart and his only companion and friend is Karel, a
lonely weirdo who feels very closely bound to nature. Unemployed and immature, he tries to
keep his family together, to make his wife stay with him, to protect his teenage son from drug
abuse, and to protect Karel from himself - but who will protect Jára?

End of winter. Two hours at the Paris Orly Airport. A young woman (Natacha Régnier), on the way home to her husband falls for a stranger (Bruno Todeschini). A mother (Mireille Perrier) and her nearly grown son (Emile Berling) are traveling to the funeral of her exhusband, the boy’s father. A young couple (Jirka Zett, Lina Falkner) on their first big trip abroad lose touch with each other. A woman (Maren Eggert) finally dares to read her husband’s (Josse De Pauw) break-up letter in the soothing anonymity of public space. All wait for their planes. Completely absorbed in following their immediate fates, they move through the impeccably structured and functional building, unaware of a looming threat outside that will result in the airport’s imminent evacuation.

Kun seems to be messing up pretty much everything: his senior year at Film school, the job on his friend's graduation's film and the relationship with his girlfriend. But Kun just got his driving license and with it, the cheapest second-hand car he could find: an old wreck of a Jeep Cherokee that might turn out to be the key to his wildest dreams.
