Trabalhar Cansa (Hard Labor)

A middle-class couple slowly succumbs to the allures of entrepreneurship – and the horror of an increasingly schizophrenic job market.  Although emotionally in sync Helena and her white-collar husband Otavio, find themselves at opposite ends of the neoliberal spectrum; just as she’s ready to take the leap into a retail start-up, he’s summarily tossed from a “stable” job into the ranks of the insomniac unemployed. Can he manage to trickle his way back up into the capitalist dream?
