Frederico Morais is a 74 year-old art critic, curator and former director of the Museum of Modern Art in Rio de Janeiro. Morais allows director Guilherme Coelho into his home to view a little-known audio-visual project of sequences of photos shown on slides with accompanying audio recordings. With this project he creates a unique dialogue with the artists he critiques; in analyzing their works of art, he creates his own to provide his critical commentary.
