Fearing the death of his wife, an old man requests that his cousin put on the Jamurikumalu, the main women's ritual of the Indigenous peoples of the Upper Xingu (Brazil), so that she may sing one last time. The women start the rehearsals, but the only singer who really knows all the songs is seriously ill. Captivating story and stunning images.
