A charming, funny and biting comedy from Brazil. Over the timespan of three Christmases, Three Summers charts the progress of an irrepressible housekeeper as the fortunes of her rich and corrupt employers fail.  A film for everyone who loves to see the rise of the underdog.

Every December, between Christmas and New Year, Edgar and Marta host a lavish family celebration at their luxurious summer house by the beach. In 2015 all seems well, despite some tense phone calls and a guest wearing an ankle monitor. In 2016 the annual party is abruptly cancelled. What happens to the invisible people living in the orbit of the rich and powerful when these lives collapse?

Through the gaze of an employee and a forgotten elderly father, both victims of the neoliberal nightmare, we see a portrait of contemporary Brazil just before the tragedy of 2018. The signs were all there, but we didn’t know how to read them.

"Three Summers charts the progressive chronology of a working-class rebellion, spearheaded by a charismatic domestic employee whose constant yet feigned state of happiness belies a great personal trauma."
"[Kogut]'s approach is methodical, her camera patient, as the cycle of life repeats and goes on despite an environment of fragility and decline."
