Dora, 14, will spend her vacation with her grandmother for the first time. Maria, 70, lives in an old house in the Historic Center of Salvador. Throughout the events, Dora will come to learn that her stay in Bahia will be permanent. She will not return to Germany (where she lives with her mother), not even to say goodbye to her friends. Dora will resist to adapt in the new city, but gradually she'll meet and become interested not only in the local culture, but in her own family's history.
