Zeca, an old-fashioned, macho truck driver decides to break up with his wife. As he drives along, his modern nice ridicules his machismo. Slowride is an anti-adventure travelogue created through mixing audio transcriptions of a real truck ride with fictional and expository passages. Inspired by Sam Millers Delhi: Adventures in a Megacity, it finds the humor in mundane events and offers a window into Brazil, a country struggling to reconcile the old with the new.
