Felipe Bragança continues his research on the potentialities of a fable-like and fantastic approach, seeking to exert the language of popular cinema juxtaposed with multiple influences and dialogues. The film follows a filmmaker (played by Higor Campagnaro) as he delves through his roots, leading him towards Portugal and Mozambique, where the fascination with an unknown reality clashes with the ailments of a violent colonial past. We find a Brazilian artist, between depression and anxiety, as he tries to discover what he can still create in a country sliding between wonder and horror. (E. V)
