Beatriz and Henrique fall in love and marry on the day of her 21st birthday. Henrique, a naval officer, spends long periods away at sea. He dreams of being a bird. Ashore, Beatriz, who learned everything from the verticality of plants, takes great care of the roots of their six children.

This is the exquisitely told story of the director's grandparents. An epic family history filled with love and longing, with magic and transformation, with mourning and remembrance.
