Original title: Abril Despedaçado. When ordered by his father to avenge the death of his older brother, a young man questions the tradition of violence between two rival families.

For 2 minutes, Flavia Marco Antonio, as Clara, performs many tricks with fire over a 4 minute period. She starts with "blow outs" with 1 and 2 torches, followed immediately by 2 torch swinging. 2 minutes later, she demonstrates transferring flame from one torch to her tongue and then lighting a second torch from this flame in her mouth. Later in the film, at an outdoor fair, 2 male jugglers perform continuous steals with 3 clubs and a hat.
