José Miguel Ribeiro's mystical animation film talks of the Angolan civil war in the form of a three-generation portrait: In the stories of Lelena (grandmother), Nayola (daughter) and Yara (granddaughter), the past and present become intertwined. Nayola goes off to search her missing husband at the height of the war and never returns, while Yara, who is a rebellious teenager, rebels against the still repressive state with subversive rap music. Lelena, in turn, tries to protect herself from police persecution.
