‘BASTIEN’ is the story of a 24 year-old, who grew up in an institution for six years and returned home of their host family. He lives with his younger brother Zezito and his adoptive grandmother, Dona Angustina. Living on the razor’s edge, Bastien depends on an ungrateful and degenerate world, dreams crumble and lives that are saved have a sterile neighborhood as background to this story played out between two brothers and barren destination that crosses their paths.
