    What if a fiction book could inspire solidarity in those who read it?

    A book about a man who dedicates his life to building the future of those who cross his path...

    Carlos had always been good at imagining characters, scenarios and plots, recreating in his mind the life stories around him.

    What started out as repetitive work at a Job Center customer service turned out to be a fascinating activity when Carlos discovered a different way of applying his creative potential.

    From nine to four, people whose ticket number appears on the screen sit in front of him and tell him their story. He selects the most promising profiles and, before they realize, the change in their lives is already underway… The course is always amazing.

    Among the few ones who know what he really does, he is known as ‘The Futures Builder’.

    With reallistic characters, with whom it is easy to identify with, a tip of mystery, action, crime and humor… the narrative develops around several cases in which the builder and his group of friends are contributing to improve the future of different people in an original and unauthorized way.

    The results they get upset the reader, creating the desire to follow their footsteps and make a difference in one's life as well.

    Winner of the 5th Agostinho Culture Award (Brazil), in the Neoleitor (new reader) category in 2016.
