Moacir is a Brazilian man who has been living in Argentina for 25 years. He is semi-illiterate and, despite his lack of any formal musical education, possesses an amazing talent for singing.
He has spent a large part of his life institutionalized in psychiatric hospitals. At age 65, with a psychiatric diagnosis of â€œparanoid schizophreniaâ€, Moacir seemed to be a typical case of chronic patients. However, after 15 years of hospitalization, is granted freedom and leaves the Borda Psychiatric Hospital.
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.
