Jaiane is a woman on her 30’s that drives an Uber for a living and sings samba amateurishly. Aissa is a sailor from Mozambique that, due to an electrical problem in his cargo ship, spends some days in the city of Vitória. Solitude and drift complement the feeling of hostility that Jaiane experiences living in Brazil of these days, as Aissa attempts to have a real experience in solid ground. In Zilda’s Bar, they finally meet. A passion is born. If this passion alone might not be enough to put end on the drift of their lives, it can at least give them the feel that they’re alive, and that might have been just what they needed to go on.

Logline | After all, what is it that unites all the lovers? Is it sadness?
