Director(s): Marcos Jorge

In the great restaurant of life, there are those who eat and those who get eaten. Raimundo Nonato, the protagonist of ESTOMAGO - a gastronomic story, finds an alternative way, a life of his own: he cooks. It happens by chance, mainly it is destiny. It happens in order to survive and find a place in society - alongside the others, «the real men»- although Nonato has nothing in common with the others; still, he must learn to live among them. He arrives to town, on a coach bus, without a penny in his pockets and starts working as help in a decadent bar, a nasty place, lost amid the urban desert. He sleeps in the storage room on the back, and under a cold neon light learns how to fry pastel and coxinhas, outdoing his master, the owner of the bar. Nonato is ignorant, but talented. He knows how to work the kitchen, soon others realize it too.
