In the backlands of Minas Gerais, where time seems to pass at the river’s pace, two elderly women keep the whirlwind of life in full swirl. Bastú has just lost her husband, but tearlessly seeks comfort in daily life and memory. But it is in the freedom of dreams and the freshness brought by her grandchildren that she manages to work her own transformation. Helping her through it is Maria, whose drum pounds with all the joy and power of her people, beating out the sounds of other places and resounding with a presence that can never die. In this world, where tradition is ambushed by novelty and reality by invention, small shifts steep the flow of life in fantasy.
