Synopsis: The film reveals in a clear and poetic way what it means to live without a father. This happens in all countries, but in Brazil it’s the experience of millions: 25% of the birth certificates do not name a father. Director Susanna Lira, fatherless herself, follows the stories of others in the same situation.
