Moments before a father’s death, all of his family memories are transferred to his son through a dream. This story is told in parallel with an investigation by two cousins who are writing a book about a family. All that is left are fragmented evidences, destroyed photos and the oral history. The narrative develops a different visual language to guide us through this saga about an unusual family made up of contradictory versions. The ancestor, an Englishman living at the end of the 18th century, arrives in Brazil and gets married to a Portuguese lady, owner of an extensive piece of land. Their heirs will become the protagonists in this history of conflicts, legends and mysteries. Love will lead to death but the supernatural will inspire love again.
