Like every morning in Jotuomba, a ghost of a village where time seems to have stopped, Madalena makes bread for Antonio’s old coffee shop. Like every day, she crosses the railways where no trains have passed for years; she cleans up the gate of the locked cemetery, and listens to the priest’s sermon before sharing lunch with the other old villages. Still clinging to the image of her dead husband and living in her memories, Madalena is suddenly awakened by the arrival of Rita, a young photographer. A deep relationship is forged between the two women, which gradually builds to have a profound effect on both other their lives as well as the rest of the villagers.
