A young Brazilian woman with a dream of becoming a midwife travels to indigenous quilombolas (communities founded in 19th century by runaway slaves) and rural communities, in search of the ancient wisdom of traditional midwives.
Mayara grew up in Sao Paulo, the largest city in Brazil and Latin America. She was a teenager surrounded by millions of people, technology, and everything the modern world can offer but she still felt empty. In search of someone who could answer her questions, she goes back to the roots of Brazil, to indigenous quilombolas and rural communities. On this journey, she meets women who show her how the wisdom of the past can heal the future. They are traditional midwives, healers, and community leaders. They are keepers of an ancient knowledge that we cannot afford to lose.
