Tracing a path from ancient customs to contemporary social interaction, this film demonstrates the unifying force of music and dance, somewhere between a dance film and a documentary.
It is the result of collaboration between Sergio Cruz and the Portuguese choreographer Miguel Pereira during a three-week artistic residence in Maputo (Mozambique) in March 2008.
