Synopsis In the mid-fifties, Santiago starts working as a butler at the Moreira Salles household, where he waits hand and foot on European aristocrats, avantgarde artists, heads of state and even a Pope. In 1992, already retired, he lives secluded in a small apartment indulging on his passions (opera and renaissance painting) and on writing the complete compilation of aristocratic lineages. Joao Moreira interviews him there, affectionately picking the brain of who knew him as a child. Santiago remembers for him the opulence of those magnificent , long-gone times.
