A penetrating look at the rite of passage, both modern and primitive, part friendly good nature, part causal fascism.

Initiation ceremonies are obligatory at the start of each academic year in Portugal. Under the orders of their elders, entire cohorts of new students crawl in the mud, mime sexual acts, drink one beer after another and repeat obscenities at the tops of their voices.
