Chinese people it´s all the same. Oriental roots in Brazil

All the way across the world, there is a great nation. They say everything there is backwards. 

Behind their slanted eyes, immigrants carry with them their ancient eastern traditions. With its Lusitanian (?) accents, Neo-Pentecostal beliefs (?), and customized tricycles (?), they came searching for better lives. 

Chinese pray, Chinese runs, Chinese do the samba. After all, as everyone knows, "Chinese people it´s all the same". This is a film about chinese immigration in Brazil.
