Hijos del Carnaval

Show Summary

Hijos del Carnaval (Filhos do Carnaval), meaning "Sons of the Carnival" in English, is a show produced by HBO for HBO Latin America and HBO Brasil. The show launched on March of 2006. Hijos del Carnival is based in a favela, or slum-like neighborhood, in Rio de Janiero. It centers around the life of a character named Anesio Gebara (Jece Valadao), a 75 year old man who owns a samba school and is a banker for an illegal lottery house called "Animal Lottery". Anesio has 4 older sons, 2 of which are his own: Anesinho (Felipe Camargo), Claudinho (Enrique Diaz), Brown (Rodrigo dos Santos), and Nilo (Thogum). The series opens with the celebration of Anesio's 75th birthday. As the family is getting together for a celebration, they hear the most tragic news: Anesinho, the eldest son, has committed suicide. Incidentally, Anesinho was Anesio's favorite son. For the remainder of the series, the remaining 'bastard' sons try to replace Anesinho, but they realize his shoes aren't easy to fill.moreless
