In “The Pink Cloud – Together. Alone. Forever.” Giovana (Renata de Lélis) and Yago (Eduardo Mendonça) meet at a party. A one-night stand spontaneously takes place in Giovana’s apartment, which both sides regard as non-binding.
But then suddenly a mysterious and huge cloud of pink poison gas descends over the city. While animals seem to be able to breathe their air safely, humans are killed within seconds. The government declares a state of emergency and obliges its citizens to barricade themselves in their homes.
When the authorities begin to supply the trapped people with food from outside via airlocks, it dawns on the two that there is no end in sight to the situation for the time being. Giovana also has to calm down her daughter, who is staying with a friend, via video chat and begins to struggle more and more with her situation. Meanwhile, Yago is soon able to gain some positive aspects from the whole thing…

“The Pink Cloud – Together. Alone. Forever.” has some uncanny parallels to the phase of the first major lockdown of the global COVID-19 pandemic. However, Iuli Gerbase, the Brazilian director and author of the work, had already written his feature film debut in 2017 and finished it in 2019. Both at the beginning of the trailer and the finished film, this fact is displayed on a text panel for the audience.
The two main roles are played by Renata de Lélis (“Bad Honey”) and Eduardo Mendonça from the TV series “Liberto” and “Necrópolis”.
