Justino, a 45-year-old Indian native, is a security guard at the Manaus harbor, an industrial city surrounded by the Amazon rainforest. Since his wife’s death, he lives in a modest house on the outskirts with his daughter. When his daughter leaves to study medicine, Justino is taken over by a bad fever, and a mysterious creature follows in his footsteps. Between the oppression of the city and the distance from his forest village, for which he is nostalgic, Justino can no longer stand a placeless existence..
