A young woman nears adulthood while still living in Brazil’s southern backlands in the 21st century. Over the course of five years of recordings between director and character, who also self-registers her life, we follow time as it passes by and how it transforms dreams, desires, and aspirations. Somewhere between mirror and window, the camera becomes a companion amid a process of maturation and transformation. (E. V.)
