Synopsis

After two years of living in São Paulo, Hermila returns to her village in northeastern Brazil with her newborn son, anxiously awaiting the arrival of her husband. Time passes slowly here and the wait becomes an even heavier burden as she slowly realizes that she's been abandoned. Determined to raise enough money to leave the stifling environment of her hometown, she comes up with an unlikely prize to raffle off - one conceived during her chats with newfound friend and local prostitute Georgina. What is most powerful, however, is the spirit of this abandoned young single mother, who is determined to live life to the fullest and not let other people determine her future.
