João searches for his biological mother who abandoned him almost over 40 years ago. In a physical and emotional journey, through a deep Brazil, little by little, this woman’s past comes to light and João’s convictions and prejudices break taboos. The proximity between mother and son is intense, painful, and fierce, bringing up anguishes and revelations which will affect both their lives forever.
