Coffin Joe (Zé do Caixão) haunts a
young man in the "Real World," who
plans to marry "the perfect woman."
José Mojica Marins must come to his aid and
convince him that Coffin Joe is just a fictional
character, and cannot possibly be harming him.
The man's nightmares are comprised of the scenes
from his earlier movies that were censored under
the military dictatorship in Brazil. The movie
flips between B&W and color, as the shots
over 10 earlier films flip across the screen.
