This documentary explores the everyday life of the members of Velha Guarda da Portela, the legendary group of samba school players that holds the record for the most titles won in the carnival of Rio de Janeiro - and how this life becomes the inspiration for their beautiful songs. Guided by contemporary singer-songwriter Marisa Monte, who interviews many of the musicians, the film also delves into Velha Guarda's history, with Monte coaxing songs from the older musicians--many never recorded--that risked being forgotten. Sure to delight all music lovers, the film also features special appearances by contemporary stars Paulinho da Viola and Zeca Pagodinho.
