Artificial Paradises tells the love story of Nando and Erika, two young people in their early 20s, who meet and miss one another over the years. Having as background the universe of mega raves and electronic music festivals, the film portrays the maturation of its protagonists from their experiences with family and friends.
Set in the 2000s, the film is narrated in three acts: the first takes place in Amsterdam, where Nando travels with his friend Patrick, and where he meets Erika, an international DJ; the second takes place a few years earlier, at a rave by the sea, where Erika go on a trip with her friend Lara, and where Nando is also attending with Patrick; the third takes place years after the first act, in Rio de Janeiro, Nando's hometown, where he faces family problems, mainly with his younger brother, Lipe, and where, eventually, he finds Erika.
