On December 13, 1968, the Brazilian military dictatorship passed Institutional Act Number Five, which marked the start of the most repressive and violent phase of the regime. Two weeks later, singer-songwriter Caetano Veloso was arrested. Fifty years later, he paints an intimate, detailed portrait of his days in solitary, recalls and performs songs that marked the period of his incarceration, and revisits painful incidents. Caetano also presents new information produced by the dictatorship about the reasons for his detainment, shedding light on the arbitrary brutality of that time in Brazilian history.
