The hospital in Fortaleza, Brazil, is so overcrowded that 70-year-old nurse Pedro cannot find a bed for his transgender friend Daniela, who is suffering from kidney failure. Without further ado, he secretly takes a wounded young man, who is under police guard on suspicion of murder, to his home and instead gives the young man’s hospital bed to Daniela. In spite of the young man’s past, a tender, physical relationship develops between the caring Pedro, whose passion for the actress Greta Garbo even influences his sex life, and Jean, his convalescent house guest. When they go to the gay sauna, Pedro is the oldest person there, prompting Jean to call him ‘my old cocksucker’. But how seriously should Pedro take Jean’s stories? And what exactly are the young man’s intentions?
