A group of actors reflects on their most traumatic experiences. Then they take turns acting one another’s ordeals out.
The quiet atmosphere of the forest is undisturbed until a man comes along. Seemingly lost, he observes and explores it before he starts to fall apart.
The starting point for this colorful film is a letter from human rights activist W.E.B. Du Bois to the American embassy in Brazil at a time when it was impossible for African Americans to travel there.

A mysterious conversation unfolds between three young men on a street corner. Meanwhile, there’s a traffic accident on a motorbike.
