Two friends, one in Brazil and the other in the United States, exchange filmic letters during the first year of the pandemic. As if in a game, they obey a program: each correspondence is inspired by the language of a woman experimental filmmaker. Through this motion of dialogues and encounters, the marks of alterity and collectiveness emerge, building passages and bridges between north and south, past and present, the worlds that we inhabit and those we still dream about.
