A pregnant young woman swims a long way upstream and gives birth to a child. She nearly drowns in the process, but another pregnant woman (or is it a goddess?) watches over her. The goddess is a great dancer! Raquel Freire (1973, Porto) studied law and film history. At present she is preparing her first feature.îÖ
