The film follows important moments in the history of Brazil, narrated by a character who lives almost 600 years ago, seeking for the resurrection of his beloved Janaína, and coming to his current life in the year 2096. It was one of the 19 submitted for the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature in the 86th edition.
The film is set in four dates in the history of Brazil: 1566, when the country was discovered by the Portuguese explorers, 1825, in events during slavery; 1968, during the high point of the authoritarian military dictatorship, and 2096, when there will be a war over water. The film narrates the love between Janaina and a native warrior who, when dying, takes the form of a bird. For six centuries, the story of the couple survives through these four stages in the history of Brazil.
