Sabá is a rubber tapper who, alongside Chico Mendes and many other comrades, fought in his youth against deforestation in the Amazon caused by the advance of agribusiness and land concentration, participating in popular demonstrations for the so-called “ties”. Sérgio de Carvalho’s documentary rescues, from within the home where Sabá and his wife Joana live, the memory of this period between the 1970s and 1980s.
