    Lourenço (Selton Mello) is a pawnshop owner who enjoys playing power games with his clients, always in control of the situation when people come to surrender their possessions. To him, the world does not seem to be much more than a collection of objects that can be bought for a little money. When he meets the new beautiful waitress (Paula Braun) at the diner where he frequently eats, Lourenço becomes obsessed with her well-shaped buttocks. Then a terrible smell begins emanating from the drain in his office. The progressively bad stench and Lourenço’s inability to express his feelings to the waitress slowly spin his life out of control.

    Lourenço (Selton Mello) es el dueño de una casa de empeños quien disfruta de los juegos de poder que ejecuta con sus clientes, siempre en control de la situación cuando la gente viene a rendir sus posesiones. Para él, el mundo no parece ser más que una colección de objetos que se pueden comprar por un poco de dinero. Cuando conoce a la nueva mesera (Paula Braun) en el café que frecuenta para comer, Lourenço se obsesiona con su bien formado trasero. Pero un terrible olor comienza a emanar del drenaje de su oficina. El olor empeora con los días, y la inhabilidad de Lourenço para expresar su sentimientos por la mesera, poco a poco arrojan su vida fuera de control.
