TRICKS, TEAS AND TRUST

Three oddball characters trying to making a living for themselves on the streets meet in downtown Rio. This film describes the encounter between a teddy-bear salesman, a magician and a pickpocket. Three different temperaments, three different professions and three different ways of interpreting life and the world. As the discussion progresses, one key question begins to emerge: do such virtues as decency and honesty still mean anything to people today?
