TAPROBANA

Luís Vaz de Camões, the greatest Portuguese Renaissance poet, struggles creatively while engaging in a hedonistic, coprophagic, and drugaddled lifestyle. He travels from the cacophony of the Indic jungles to the frontier of Heaven and Hell, where he is confronted by his fantasy: fame and immortality.
