    • Synopsis
    • Sofia lives alone in the dusty old Lisbon apartment where she grew up. She never goes out but to work and back. And no one ever visits – until Mariama arrives on her doorstep from Guinea-Bissau. Sofia’s mother has sent her to help take care of the house, Sofia and her son. But except for Sofia the house seems deserted. When Mariama’s young sister Bobô arrives, she begins to draw Sofia out of her shell. Meanwhile, behind her resolute smile, Mariama lives in fear of her grandmother, who sees it as her duty to take Bobô through an ancient rite of passage. Each in her own way, Sofia and Mariama come to move in league as they confront their demons.
