Pindorama - The True Story Of The Seven Dwarves
A wandering family that made out of joy its product, out of tricks its job. Charles, Zuleide, Gilberto, Cleide, Rogério, Claudio e Lobão are the seven dwarfs, all of them sons of the mythical Pindoba, the smallest and funniest clown in the world. Together, they form the Pindorama Circus, going from town to town in the North of Brazil.
An exemplary place which carries inside simplicity and humanity, fun and bravery. In their world, every one wants to be a dwarf and all this makes the Pindorama world something new, completely different from everything that surrounds it.
