Ana (Rosina Malbouisson) goes to visit her friend Diana (Paola Morra), that is in her farm near Gramado, south of Brazil. Diana's mother died mysteriously a long time ago and her father is always travelling. Mariana (Maria Rosa), a young maid who works in the farm, takes care of Diana.

The farm is big – spacious green grass clearings delimited by big pine trees. There's a fence encircling everything, and outside, the forest, and deep inside it, a small peaceful river. There's something strange in the area – sometimes a very thin layer of fog is in the air, and one may get the feeling of something watching, maybe lurking.

The girls walk around the farm, Diana (Paola Morra) showing everything to Ana (Rosina Malbouisson) and they will meet on their way a strange woman (whom Diana had known as a child), Dagmar (Karin Rodrigues). Dagmar will be the linking bridge between the girls and the world beyond life. Diana and Ana will start , without knowing it, a dangerous journey to a world no longer in existence. The only links to reality seem to be Mariana, the maid, that likes Diana and is worried about her, and a mysterious drifter (Serafim Gonzalez) – no one knows where he's come from, his name and what he's doing there. Maybe he's a guardian. Who knows?

There's an invisible web being woven around Diana and Ana. Will they notice it before it's too late?

"As Filhas do Fogo" (The Daughters of Fire) could be labeled as a horror film, but only people that still have some imagination left may enjoy the film. The horror is in the atmosphere - there are the two girls and there's the approaching darkness...

"As Filhas do Fogo" is an interesting film, rich in images and sounds, with an interesting story. It was the second (and last) horror film made by Walter Hugo Khouri, and it could be better classified as an 'existentialist horror".
