When a time machine turns up at a slow functioning Brazilian patent office, its incompetent boss gets a brilliant idea to duplicate the employees in order to increase productivity. But the doubles that he keeps locked up in the building's basement aren't going to give up their lazy ways without a fight.
If you ever encountered the slow working mills of bureaucracy, you will thoroughly enjoy this brilliant satire. Director Santiago Dellape's debut feature earned a special mention of the fantasy jury at this year's Fantasporto.
