Fresh out of prison, Heraldo resumes his life working in a motel by the road. When getting involved with Dayana, his boss’s wife, he finds himself seduced by the possibilities that would appear to him without the boss on the way. Driven by helplessness and youthful inconsequence, Heraldo embarks on a spiral of crime and ambition that impels him to carry forward Dayana’s risky plan.
MOTEL DESTINO tells the story of Heraldo, a young man from a correctional institution for juvenile offenders. Certain that the partner, who got rid of a conviction thanks to him, would have kept his part in the assault, Heraldo travels to the central backlands of Ceará. He ends up facing the ingratitude of his partner, who did not keep his part. Without any money or whereabouts, Heraldo ends up at Motel Destino. There, he gets a job with a hefty salary and an overwhelming passion for the owner’s young wife. Heraldo is an exponent of a generation left to its own devices, which the State chose to forsake. Heraldo’s luck chose Motel Destino. In the middle of nowhere, cool from the rest of the world, where Heraldo experiences a state of suspension, he will have to decide whether to dive into Dayana’s plan or look for another option. Like a suicide bomber on his terrorist mission, Heraldo seems to have no escape from the launched tragedy. MOTEL DESTINO is, therefore, a story of a Brazil in crisis, which abandoned its youth to its own fate, where the weight of Heraldo’s choices is, in reality, much less than the circumstances surrounding him.
