A feature documentary by César Charlone and Daniel Augusto
Lula da Silva, the star of the Brazilian political group and a favorite amongst every social strata, was sentenced to twelve years imprisonment as a result of the Petrobas corruption scandal. Just in time for the October 2018 election, for which he is the favorite running for the worker's party (PT). In the coming months, he will find out whether his appeal to higher courts has been successful and he can return to his post as leader of Brazil, or whether he will be imprisoned for an unknown length of time. The documentary film follows Lula da Silva in the months leading up to the decision „President or Prison“ and deconstructs piece by piece, moment by moment, the corrupt history of this crisis-stricken country. We hear the opinions of numerous politicians who have never publicly expressed their views on this systemic corruption. Former presidents and economic experts will unravel its weaknesses, putting forward their own suggestions and scenarios about the future of Brazil.
