ABOUT

Make Do With What You Have Is a costumes comedy, with tones of melancholy, free for all audiences. It tells the story of Marina, a ten-year-old girl who wants a pet and is not happy with the fish she gets from her mother, Joana. The two live in a small apartment in the suburbs and Joana spends her days outside, working as a hairdresser in a neighborhood salon. That is why Claudia, an unconventional nanny, a catalog model for popular stores, whose dream is to pose in the "casual fashion" session, is in charge of Marina during this school vacation. Who also spends the afternoons with Marina, locked in the apartment and watching TV, is Vini, his eight-year-old neighbor, who is there because his mother and Joana share Claudia's rate. And the fish ends up influencing the relationships between these people because, for some inexplicable reason, it makes everyone nervous. It is in this context that we can observe the characters having to deal with what they have, arranging impromptu - and palliative - solutions to deal with the small problems of everyday life.


SYNOPSIS

Marina wants a pet, but not the fish she got from her mother, the hairdresser Joana, with whom she lives in a small apartment in the suburb. Marina finds the fish an extremely unnerving being, and it ends up becoming the pivot of small conflicts. Without getting what she wants, the girl spends spending her boring vacation afternoons in front of the TV with her neighbor Vini and nanny Claudia, aspiring model.
