A film about embracing life with no fear of death. After the passing of her husband, an octogenarian widow is far from done with living and proves to be a source of inspiration for her blood relatives and extended family as she relishes the day-to-day. Almost documentary in feel as non-professional actors portray versions of themselves in improvised scenes, this slice of existence in rural Brazil can’t help but be charming and life-affirming.
