Painful family issues push Augusta (Jasmine Trinca), a young Italian woman, to doubt the certainties on which she had built her existence. On a small boat and in the immensity of the Amazon nature, she begins her journey accompanying Sister Franca (Pia Engleberth), a friend of her mother’s (Anne Alvaro), in her mission to the Indios villages. Augusta doesn’t find any answers to the her existential issues and, after having parted company from Franca, she fits in the reality of the favelas of Manaus: there, thanks to the simplicity of the local population, she manages to once again feel the atavistic strength of life instinct. But the pain of the disappearance of a child that she had strongly grown fond of and the suffering of her mother drive her to embark on a new journey, "back to the land", leading her to disconnect from everything, lost in a nature which feels as inexorable as life
