Moacir is Brazilian and an Argentine citizen for the last 25 years. He is semi-literate and despite possessing no formal musical training, is bearer of an amazing talent for singing. Moacir is made of music. He also talks a lot, eats a lot, dance a lot, laughs a lot, everything in him is “a lot”. That is why he have spent much of his life locked up in mental institutions. At age 65, with a psychiatric diagnosis of “paranoid schizophrenia”, Moacir seemed to be a typical case of chronic patients. However, after 15 years of hospitalization, is granted freedom and leaves the Borda Psychiatric Hospital.

This story follows his passionate journey to fulfill her greatest wish, recording an album with themes of authorship (which were lost for over 25 years). The artist and musician Sergio Pángaro will follow Moacir’s Journey. All this and much else will happen while fighting the ghosts of madness and marginalization, a journey full of fanfare, singing, dancing, fighting, chaos, humor and charm.
