Jonathas’ harmonious life with his parents and brother Juliano as fruit farmer and vendor in a the remote Amazonas is disturbed when the two brothers go camping in the jungle with the beautiful tourist Milly.

Yet it is unclear how these carefully constructed pictures and sounds take us out from there.
