BR-3 Documentary records the testimony of actors and technicians involved in the staging of BR-3 at Rio Tiete in Sao Paulo. The plot of the play follows the saga of three generations of a northeastern family. The play begins when Brasília was still a construction site in the 50s, and then moves to the traffic on the outskirts of the 90s. The film also shows director Antonio Araújo’s process in the mounting of the play.
