The Man of the Crowd

Juvenal drives a tram in Belo Horizonte, one of Brazil’s main cities. This reticent man spends his spare time in his apartment. Whenever he’s thirsty, he drinks water from the one and only glass he possesses. His colleague Margô asks him to be a witness at her wedding, but this means that some sort of friendly relationship should exist between these two lonely people – and this takes time.
