Cleuza, a pregnant single mother, works as a domestic for a middle-class family on the outskirts of São Paulo. Cleuza has four sons, each of whom has a different father. The oldest son, Dênis, is a motorcycle courier who is tempted into street crime; Dinho is an evangelical Christian filled with suppressed sexuality and doubt; Dario is a brilliant footballer who needs cash to bribe a talent scout, and the youngest, Reginaldo, is obsessed with the belief that the local bus driver is his father. Heartfelt and engaging, Linha de Passe deftly interweaves its five stories to present a portrait of a family that is unique, and yet just like all families, everywhere.
