An adult daughter goes to visit her aging mother who has just died. Before doing so, she wrote a moving letter to her offspring about their true relationship. Together the silence, emptiness and minimal movement as well as the repetitions on the soundtrack work like a mantra. Beautifully shot in Fortaleza, Brazil.
