THE GOD BESIDE MY BED BRA

Thomas, un rico expatriado francés que pasa sus días en una ebriedad sin fin, ha llegado a una ciudad en el borde de la Amazonía brasileña para asistir a un funeral. Creyendo que será recibido por la familia y los amigos de la fallecida como una especie de hijo pródigo, se encuentra con una realidad inesperada. Cuando la hija de la mujer, Claire, insiste en que nunca se lo había mencionado, se hunde en la incredulidad y la desesperación. Solo e intoxicado, deambula por la ciudad. Empieza a seguir a Claire, cada vez más incapaz de distinguirla de su madre y el pasado del presente. Mientras está en un bar, conoce a William, un expatriado estadounidense carismático y sospechosamente rico. Después de dormir en la calle una noche de borrachera, lo visten con túnica y lo golpean. Al carecer de las credenciales para regresar a su hotel, se queda sin hogar. Cautivado por un rumor de tribus indígenas "aisladas", desciende a un estado volátil, pero extrañamente eufórico, atraído por una noción romántica de la selva primordial que está más allá.


Thomas—a wealthy, French ex-pat, who spends his days in an intoxicated freefall–has arrived in a city on the edge of the Brazilian Amazon to attend a memorial service. Believing he will be received by the deceased woman’s family and friends as a kind of prodigal son, he meets an unexpected reality. When the woman’s daughter, Claire, insists that there was never a mention of him, he sinks into disbelief and despair. Lonely and intoxicated, he wanders the city. He begins to follow Claire, increasingly unable to distinguish her from her mother, and the past from the present. While at a bar, he meets William, a suspiciously wealthy, charismatic American ex-pat. After sleeping on the street one drunken night, he is robed and beaten. Lacking the credentials to return to his hotel, he becomes homeless. Initially, amused by the experience, he welcomes it, only to be forced to depend on the untrustworthy acquaintances around him. Captivated by a rumor of “uncontacted” indigenous tribes, he descends into a volatile— but strangely euphoric—state, enticed by a romantic notion of the primordial forest beyond.
