1882: the steamship Savoy crosses the Atlantic Ocean to Rio de Janeiro. On board, among the hundreds of Italian immigrants crammed into third class, there are two brothers from Campania escaping from poverty and in search of fortune in the New World: Pasquale and Gaetano Segreto. The younger brother Alfonso, who will join them in 1898 with a Pathé camera, will be one of the pioneers of cinema, the first to shoot films in Brazil. In a short time the brothers will become successful entrepreneurs, founding newspapers, amusement parks, cinemas and theaters. But their relationship will slowly crumble over the years. After Pasquale's death, a huge fire will put an end to their dream and their empire.
