This film is rather short on story and technical presentation, but basically chronicles how a native African arrives in Brazil to find the remains of his family and bring them back home and then meets a female shaman who joins him on his search. Her lover causes some trouble but is soon dispatched, and flashbacks to slave life 200 years earlier provide a historical setting for the beginning relationships between Brazil and Africa.
