synopsis

One day, air conditioners in the Angolan capital Luanda mysteriously start to fall from the buildings. When security guard Matacedo is told to get his overheating boss an aircon unit before the end of the day, he starts a mission that among other things brings him into contact with the eccentric owner of an electronics store. His search is the starting point for a pleasantly free film about the heartbeat of Luanda. A great jazzy soundtrack, the rap and the chaotic hum of the city guide us through its streets and buildings.
