A fairy tale about youth and courage, A Alegria tells the story of 16-year-old Luiza, a girl who is tired of hearing about the end of the world. During the Christmas holidays, her cousin João is shot in a poor neighborhood of the city and disappears into the middle of the night. Some weeks after, while Luiza is alone in her apartment, she finds a mysterious guest waiting for her in the living room: João, as a ghost, asking her to help hide him.
