Rejane, Pedro, Fatima, Fabiano and their friends prepare to create their own films. In common, they all have serious mental health problems. They go through their memories, their reflections on life and the world, building their own narrative. Between their world and the world of others, they build a powerful reflection on madness, love, loneliness and the challenges that life imposes on us. 

You Didn't Know About Me emerges as a film device, and ends as an affection structure and existentialist elaboration. It is a film within another film, they are stories within other stories. In the exposure of countless layers, it opens up countless perceptions. It questions borderline concepts between reality, fiction and reverie. And it leaves many questions to be answered by those who watch it, including: How many films can we fit in?
