Augusto is an actor hungry for a place in the spotlight as he tries to follow in the footsteps of his mother, a stage artist in the 50s. Starting off in soft porn and soap operas, he finally gets the chance to conquer the crowds when he is cast as Bingo, a television host clown. The show is a big hit with his irreverent humour and natural talent, but a clause in his contract forbids him to reveal his true identity. As such, Augusto becomes an anonymous celebrity. With makeup on he brings happiness to children across the country, but not to his own son Gabriel, who sees his father distancing himself in search of recognition. Filled with irony, humour and an exaggerated pop look from the backstage universe of Brazilian 80’s television, this film tells the incredible and surreal story of a man that whilst looking for his artistic value, finds his personal decay.
