Silvia, a young, mediumic market researcher, faces the hardships of underemployment while awaiting the result of a public exam. At the same time, Jerusa, a gracious 77-year-old lady, eyewitnesses the daily life of Bixiga, a neighborhood filled with ancestral memories. On Jerusa’s birthday, while she waits for her family’s arrival, the encounter between her deepest memories and Silvia’s mediumship allows them to travel through time and realities common to their ancestry.
