After some months in the Verde village, in Ladainha (Minas Gerais), the yãmiyhex (women-spirit) are getting ready to leave. The filmmakers Sueli and Isael Maxakali record the preparations and the big farewell party. During those festive days, a crowd of spirits cross the village. The yãmiyhex leave but they will always return, missing their fathers and mothers.
A film haunted by a myth, inhabited by the careful construction of rituals and celebration, moved by the force of a spiritual bond with every manifestation of life.
