In São Paulo today, CORES follows the everyday routine of three bewildered friends.

They always make the least of any situation: Luca is a tattoo artist who lives with his grandmother. Luiz works in a drugstore and does drug trafficking with his motorcycle while Luara, his girlfriend takes care of an ornamental fish shop. Their dramatic nonchalance leads them to hang out together to avoid boredom and get away from the consumerist society while they all believe in better days.

CORES is a tale of love and cheating between three youngsters from São Paulo, a huge city in full economic upswing.
