A deceased mother is not dead; she lives in the blowing wind, in the rising tide of a full moon night. In order to grieve and properly say goodbye to her love ones, Isabel Cardoso 71, decides to share with her late mother, deceased over 30 years earlier, certain key moments of her life. Isabel and her late mother spent most of their time working in the plantations in Sao Tome during the colonial time and subsequently in various cleaning and catering services once in Portugal. They never really have a moment for themselves. This is the odyssey of a black woman and her mother transcending space, time and dimension while highlighting black womanhood and struggle in Portugal.
