Donato works as a lifeguard at the spectacular but treacherous Praia do Futuro beach in Brazil; Konrad is an ex-military thrill-seeker from Germany vacationing with a friend. After he saves Konrad from drowning, but fails to save his other friend, initial sexual sparks give way to a deeper, emotional connection. He decides to leave everything behind, including his ailing mother and younger brother, Ayrton, to travel back to Berlin with Konrad. There, he finds both confusion and liberation, and his journey for love soon turns into a deeper search for his own identity. Eight years later, an unexpected visit from Ayrton, brings all three men back together as they struggle to reconcile the pain of loss and longing, instinctively drawn to each other in search of hope and a brighter future.Written by

Actually, this movie does not bring anything new to the Brazilian cinema.
I found its story totally lame. What about this synopsis after all? And it solely relies on the (already-way-too-mainstream) shocking sexually-appealing feature.
Also, German seems like the easiest language to be learned by a regular Brazilian, as the confusing time line does not allow to understand how long the main character spends on Germany. Same for his young brother, for whom the language-learning process has - again - a lame explanation.
Score is 3 out of 10 just for the few nice shots, even though the slowness of this movie is definitely boring.
