The selfish Dr. André Luiz dies and awakes in a kind of limbo called "Umbral". After a painful and numb period in a gruesome swamp, he is rescued and brought to "Nosso Lar" (meaning "Our Home"), a spiritual city. He finds a place of harmony, where people live in peace, working for the good of humanity, for the self evolution and awaiting for reincarnation. Sooner André Luiz changes his behavior becoming a more self aware and altruist man.Written by

I am enthusiastic about exploring spirituality, and finding out about what it means to be human. But this film is a most convoluted collection of poor acting, cheap melodramatic moments, horrid set design, and weak directing I've had the misfortune to witness. It assumes that the audience is so dumb that it needs dramatic pauses and zooming in on the tears of the actors at proper moments to guide them and show them when to feel sad.
The film is full of cheap tricks to lead the viewer to the conclusions instead of giving him/her the luxury of making up their mind. It's a soup of all religious beliefs that tries to deliver the overall positive message that people need to live for more than material goods.
I usually support Brazilian cinematography (2 Filhos de Francisco, etc), but this was an insult to any intelligent viewer anywhere.
