Fifteen-year-old Mano spends the day playing his guitar, riding his bike and hanging out with his friends at night.  But one day a shocking revelation makes him realize that life is not that easy.  All of a sudden he has to deal with the challenges of being popular at school, having sex for the first time, the relationship with his parents, the discovery of love and find out who he is in the process.  Bodanzky’s latest is a sweet, funny, intelligent coming of age tale with a great soundtrack set in São Paulo and inspired by the Brazilian bestselling book series Mano, by Gilberto Dimenstein and Heloisa Prieto.
