Trapped in the office of his seedy Rio De Janeiro pawnshop, Lourenco aspires to live a more romantic life, while cruelly manipulating the shop's desperate patrons. Desperate for contact, yet hopelessly disconnected with the world around him, his life becomes dominated with two obsessions: the well-shaped rear of a local waitress and the growing smell from his back-room toilet. As sewage and seduction run wild, Lourenco breaks down as he fights between suppressing his raging fetishes or embracing them. Nominated for Sundance's Grand Jury Prize, Drained is a disgusting and enthralling take on film noir that provides a "scatological piece of theater of the absurd" that's never less than engaging (Robert Koehlker, Variety).
