Synopsis

Henrique and Beatriz got married on her twenty-first birthday. Henrique, a naval officer, would spend long periods at sea. On land, Beatriz, who has learned everything in life through her love for plants, makes sure that the family’s seed is growing by taking care of their six children. Jacinto (Hyacinth), their oldest son and the directress’ father, transforms into a bird in his dreams. In a story as old as time, death intrudes like an unexpected guest. A heartfelt tale of metamorphosis that delves into loss and grief, flying away and growing roots at the same time.

Ο Ενρίκε και η Μπεατρίς παντρεύτηκαν ανήμερα των εικοστών πρώτων γενεθλίων της. Ο Ενρίκε, αξιωματικός του ναυτικού, περνά μεγάλο μέρος της ζωής του στη θάλασσα. Πίσω στην ξηρά, η Μπεατρίς, που έχει μάθει τα πάντα για τη ζωή μέσα από την αγάπη της για τα φυτά, φροντίζει τα έξι παιδιά της οικογένειας. Ο Ζασίντου (Υάκινθος), ο μεγαλύτερος γιος και συγχρόνως πατέρας της σκηνοθέτιδος, βλέπει στα όνειρά του ότι είναι πουλί. Σε μια ιστορία παλιά όσο κι ο άνθρωπος, ο θάνατος εισβάλλει σαν απρόσκλητος επισκέπτης. Ένα ταξίδι μεταμόρφωσης, γεμάτο καρδιά και ζεστασιά, που ψηλαφεί το πένθος και την απώλεια, βγάζοντας ρίζες και φτερά την ίδια ακριβώς στιγμή.

Henrique e Beatriz casaram-se no seu vigésimo primeiro aniversário. Henrique, um oficial da marinha, passaria longos períodos no mar. Em terra, Beatriz, que aprendeu tudo na vida através do seu amor pelas plantas, assegura-se de que a semente da família está a crescer tomando conta dos seus seis filhos. Jacinto (Jacinto), o seu filho mais velho e o pai da directora, transforma-se num pássaro nos seus sonhos. Numa história tão antiga como o tempo, a morte intrompese como um convidado inesperado. Um conto sincero de metamorfose que mergulha na perda e no luto, voando para longe e criando raízes ao mesmo tempo.
