    In 1959, assassin WA4 was assigned to go to Earth and to assassinate the president during a nationwide ceremony in a country called Brasilia. However, he had a problem during his trip and set off in Ceilandia, the capital city of Brasilia in 2016. Only one person who can help stumble WA4 is Queen Andreia. Could he succeed in the task of killing monsters in government? In [#i_]Once There was Brasilia[_i#], the symbolic structure is a metaphor for the modern history of Brazil. This anarchist vision of the film is interesting, which seems to condescend the convention of the SF genre that creates a parallel universe with the present. In a dystopian atmosphere, Adirley Queiros metaphorically expresses the political situation of Brazil struck by coup d´Etat and assassinations. [JANG Byungwon]
