Director Statement

Times of fear around the world, where people face a common and deadly enemy, the Covid19's pandemic. In Brazil, we face two. An authoritarian, deadly, fear spreader government. An atmosphere of constant threat and lack of hope for a better future. Presenting characters such as a black mother and a black trans daughter, this is a fable about the wish for a world where life can be truly possible.
