Storyline

Sofia lives a strangely isolated life in the old apartment gathering dust where she grew up in Lisbon. Mariama arrives from Guinea-Bissau, having been hired by Sofias mother to help take care of the house and also her son. But where is he, this son who never shows his face? It is the appearance of Bobô, Mariama's younger sister, who awakens in Sofia the desire to take a stand and to get out of her shell. Behind a resolute smile, Mariama is in fear for young Bobô, about to undergo female genital mutilation by the hands of their grandmother. The forced cohabitation between Sofia and Mariana makes them confront their own private ghosts. BOBÔ is without doubt a film from a strong female perspective, not aiming the tangible but the trascendental. The film tackles universal questions such as death, the order of the world, the unnameable.
