Modern day Brazil, but lost in time. Cristovam, a native Black man from the rural North, moves to a Southern town, a strange sort of Austrian colony, to work in a milk factory. Confronted with xenophobic conservative people, he feels isolated and estranged from the white world. He discovers an abandoned house, filled with objects and memorabilia reminding him of his origins. He settles in, reconnecting with his roots. As if this memory house were alive, more objects start to appear. Slowly, Cristovam begins a metamorphosis.
For his feature debut, director João Paulo Miranda Maria uses spiritual and fantastical story-telling to encapsulate the social and racial tensions of modern day Brazil.
