Viviane (played by Adriana Sottomaior) struggles to balance between single motherhood and waged work. When tragedy strikes her inner-city neighborhood, powerlessness and guilt plunge her into a spiral of mistrust. Combining an immersion into the intimate universe of the characters alongside an engaged social criticism, the director responsible for “Aquele Casal” (Olhar ’19) continues to explore the many facets of violence in his debut feature film, which proliferate and overlap a traumatic incident. *(C.M)
