Synopsis

A television weather reporter travels to his native small town in the Brazilian north-east for the funeral of his father, who was killed under questionable circumstances. When he finally arrives in Rocha Valley, devastated by drought, he is forced to face not only his strange family, but also Indians, marijuana planters, conservative politicians, clairvoyants, water-diviners, soothsayers and spiritual leaders – and, above all, his own memories. The plunge into this almost unbelievable world is followed from a distance by his friends Bob, Falcao and Vera, and from close-up by Soledad, a filmmaker making a video about the importance of water. Soon after their arrival in this God-forsaken land, various events are set in motion whose outcome no-one can predict…
