dir Daniel Rezende

At the end of a tough workweek an assistant congressman and his friend go to an abandoned room in the Capitol building to relax and smoke a joint. While trying to unwind the assistant congressman complains about his job. He is doing all he can to cover up his boss’ scandalous sex affair but nothing seems to be working. “Things can’t get any worse”, he proclaims . . . but they do!
