Arriving in Rio de Janeiro shaken to the core yet cautiously optimistic, Randall, a stubble-obsessed, gym-groomed Singaporean in his early thirties, is fleeing the emotional fallout from a tragic misadventure whilst wrestling with numbness over the end of a romantic relationship.

When he befriends two locals Marcelo and Felipe – both alluringly attractive in their own ways but could hardly be more different in temperament and their ability to speak English, he finds himself having to navigate behavioural and cultural chasms in the name of friendship, sex and possibly love. What follows is a barrage of secrets and unforeseen developments threatening to consume them.

Taking place over the course of Carnival, a time to drink, dance, flirt and make love, this light-hearted, quirky story of identity and redemption also doubles up as a love letter to Rio, brimful of all things Brazilian from gastronomic and musical emblems to unblinking observations of what makes this popular travel destination at once lyrical and intoxicating.
