    • Synopsis
    • Jotuomba is a fictitious village located in Vale do Paraiba, Brazil, where rich coffee plantation went bankrupt, and once wealthy villages practically became ghost towns. The city is inhabited by a few older residents who lived within the memories of those relatives who have already passed away and are buried in the only cemetery in town, which is currently locked.
      Magdalena, the baker, lives here. Her life is an endless repetition of the same routine - which starts with making bread early in the morning and ends with writing a letter to her dead husband every night. One day Rita, a young photographer, arrives. The encounter of two different cultures and generations gradually changes Magdalena’s routine. Rita discovers that Jotuomba is an undying village since the cemetery was closed. Magdalena, willing to die, is unable to do so. When Rita opens the cemetery, Magdalena allows herself to die.
      But, now, someone needs to make the bread.
