Tells the story of a 63 year-old woman who suffers from schizophrenia. Estamira has lived and worked for the past 20 years at the waste disposal site of Jardim Gramacho in Rio de Janeiro.

With a poetic, philosophical and eloquent discourse, Estamira lives for the mission that was set upon her: to reveal and to reclaim the truth
La riña( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in Portuguese and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on true stories, "La Riña" highlights the polemic of bare knuckle fights in a playboy party where drugs and drinks are served on silver trays. The plot consists of a secret party thrown by ex-students from the American school who bet fortunes in poor wrestlers confronting each other inside an empty swimming pool for a few dollars. Instead of showing typical poverty in Brazil, "La Riña" unveils the opposite by unmasking a luxurious and sick elite in São Paulo."--IMDb
