Two tales of migration between the city and the countryside. After devastating floods in her hometown, rural worker Joana moves to São Paulo to find her sister Tania who lives with her grandson Jaime. Joana struggles to thrive in this “working city”. Entering the world of precarious employment, she applies for a job at a cleaning company. There, Joana gradually bonds with her colleagues whose collective struggle for better working conditions brings new meaning to her life. Meanwhile, her deepening relationship with young Jaime reawakens memories of her missing son. In the second part of the film, following the death of her estranged father, Flavia moves to his farm with her wife Mara. The two women struggle to make a fresh start in the wilderness. Living in the abandoned house, Flavia discovers unknown aspects of her father’s life. The couple suffers a shock when facing the harsh realities of rural daily life. Flavia begins to suspect that there is something in the woods surrounding the house. Nature forces the couple to confront old memories and ghosts.
