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.

Spain during the Noche de San Juan festival. Two sisters, 14-year-old Jessica and 8-year-old Alma, are once again on their way to pick
up food stamps from the Caritas charity. The violence they have both experienced over the years at the hands of their father has turned
Jessica into an angry, self-destructive teenager with a thick protective skin. She even subjects her little sister to her harsh, hostile
behaviour. But during the course of their journey together, Jessica realises that she does not want to turn out like her father. She must
learn to treat Alma with love instead of violence.

He pays him a visit in Frankfurt during his work trip to Europe. He talks about their time in Beijing, back in 2015. He listens, sometimes
answers, unblurring those seemingly important details which do not matter any longer. Worn-out joy and fresh weariness. This might be
the last time they meet.
