'Uma Prenda Especial' (A Special Gift) deals with condom negotiation and the importance of using protection during sex, even in exclusive relationships.
Jú and Zé Maria, a young couple who have just begun their relationship, go to the beach to celebrate Zé Maria's birthday. They both want to have sex, but Jú asks Zé Maria to wear a condom to be safe. Ze Maria accuses Jú of not trusting him and says she should be able to tell that he's HIV negative just by looking at him. They argue, but Jú refuses to have unprotected sex. The video ends as Zé Maria, disappointed, walks away from Jú.
