In 1910, in Maranhão, the insane Vasco de Sá moves with his pregnant urban wife Áurea and her mother Maria to a wilderness land near a lagoon and surrounded by shifting dunes. Sooner his workers abandon the place, and Vasco dies, leaving the two women alone and without any resources. They are supported by a local son of a former slave, Massu, and they learn how to survive creating goats. Along the years, Áurea raises her daughter Maria, hoping to move back to the capital someday. Her hope becomes anguish and despair as years go by, until her final adaptation to the place.- Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
