Experiencing Interruptions?

The Spanish

A couple of rubber barons of Manaus transports themselves from 1919, the end of the Spanish Flu in Brazil, to 2020, peak of Covid-19 pandemic. Among quinine, British tea, beiradão music and internet modem, the misadventures of the couple, under the intoxicating opium of pornochanchada, show how Brazil's
conservative structures keep themselves up since other times.
