    • When the Portuguese King Don Sebastian lost the Alcacer Quibir's battle in the 16th Century, his body was swallowed by the sands of Morocco and disappeared. His spirit, however, raised an army and founded an enchanted kingdom in the Lençóis Island, in the Northeast of Brazil. Five centuries later, Joana, a young Portuguese woman, arrives in the island looking for her long gone king.
