A group of teenagers surrounded by an environment of buildings and luxurious offices. By their conversations we understand that they have power: they make political, economic, social decisions. Some of them have also power over the others.
This film explores the social and political imagination of a group of young people of a working-class neighbourhood in the middle of the nowadays economic crisis. In fact, the film is a story about the crisis. These teenagers imagination is not very different from the one that the audience has. But in their case, they believe they’ll never have the power they appear to have on the film.
The fiction is constituted this way in a double level. On one hand the teenagers explore their own ideas of power, respect and relationships between men and women. On the other hand, the viewer is confronted by his own ideas regarding this themes and, at the same time, by the impossibility of the image presented– beyond all the good intentions always proclaimed by our society.
It won’t be the same is a journey to the darkness heart of our society, leaded by those who, as this teenagers, are its ambiguous victims.
With Josué Freire, Elisabeth Ventura, Greidys Pamela Báez, Cong Cong Zhai, Paloma Rodríguez, Fernando Quisna, Nixon Freire.
