CGiii Comment

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