One morning, Quincas Wateryell (Paulo José) doesn't wake up after another night of partying in sleazy bars and brothels. When the news reaches the family he despised, his funeral looks like another humiliation for his daughter Vanda when all of Bahia's high society wants to honour the man she claims left to marry an Italian heiress. But first, with her husband and uncle, Vanda must watch over the corpse in Quincas' squalid hotel room, where his four best drinking buddies gather to give him the send-off he deserves. When the family members are asleep, they sneak Quincas out for one last phenomenal party. With Vanda and the police on their tail, Quincas and his buddies' offbeat rampage provokes chaos and unforeseen consequences...
The Two Deaths Of Quincas Wateryell is a positive and colourful story that celebrates life to the full - a Brazilian Weekend at Bernie's!
