O dia em que Dorival encarou a guarda

The day Dorival faced the Guards

Jorge Furtado

When a prisoner demands a shower, the standoff between him and the guards quickly becomes a tragicomic example of the workings of power and race in Brazil in a microcosm. The tale is also an existential parable about getting what you want, at any cost.
