Celluloid Dreams The Directors Label


Liberdade, Sao Paulo – a multi-ethnic neighborhood with the largest Japanese immigrant community in the world. Here,
traditional Japanese achitecture clashes with the gritty urban landscapes, while people of all races come here to do
business – legal or illegal. This is where the story of PLASTIC CITY begins…
Yuda, a feared Chinese outlaw, and his adopted son Kirin, an impulsive young dreamer, together rule the pirated goods
racket in the ultra-liberal Brazilian metropolis. The magnate and his heir control all of Liberdade, from rival gangs to
street hawkers, corrupt politicians to erotic dancers. But an empire that takes years to build can also crumble to the
ground with one fatal mistake…
A conspiracy between politicians and the mafia begins to threaten Yuda’s power. Little by little, he loses control of
his business and is ultimately arrested. Kirin struggles to re-conquer his father’s honor, fighting this city’s wars singlehandedly.
But Yuda, tired of the bloodshed and feeling the weight of his years, abandons his son, falsifies his own death
and returns to the jungle in a last attempt to put an end to his criminal life.
Escaping from a complex maze of violence, Kirin sets out to find his father. In the mysterious jungle, father and son both
have to wipe the slate of their past clean. Only in the end will Kirin discover the ultimate answer to the search for his
own destiny.
