Between fiction and documentary, this film is based on a dream. The Manoki and Myky people know that the beings who share the world with humans are asking us for help, especially the Mju’u, the mothers of the earth.
A plane chases a boy all over the village, just like in reality: aircraft spray pesticides on neighboring crops fly over the Paredão village, in the Brazilian Amazon. Always, the community smells poison inside the village, which causes great concern to families.
