Joca, Pepe and Gui are three coconuts that live on top of a palm tree in Brazil. As one of them naturally falls from the tree, the other two are left with divergent feelings of excitement to see the world beyond and fear what the unknown may bring. Despite their different emotions, they can’t escape their foreseen destiny: all coconuts must fall.
