It's carnival in Brazil. The young João Pedro, best friend of Anídio, wants to hook up with the naif Rayane, who comes from Bahia to São Paulo obsessed with the idea of ​​getting a "gringo" boyfriend. Anídio has a "brilliant" plan to help his friend to conquer his cousin: João Pedro will pretend to be American, although he doesn't know how to speak English. In Anídio's plan this detail is irrelevant because Rayane doesn't speak anything in "american" either. The plan seems perfect, but to succeed, João Pedro will have to hide the plan from his father, an arabian inmigrant antiamerican known for his simple nickname,  "The Bomb Man".
