A movie on the though tims of old people, trust and respect, finding one’s way for life and the meaning of being a mother. An elderly lady, The Queen of Clouds, has been saving for a trip to Brazil for years, to visit her beloved sister, the Queen of Samba. A handsome, young man, whom she believes to be her dead son, takes her for the journey. He patiently bears all her crazy ideas and moods, but instead of going to the port to board a boat, he brings her to the mountains. There she must fight for him with a beautiful, young girl, especially since he is the only one who knows where they are going and why. Spending time together teaches them the true meaning of the words like respect, friendship, love and promises keeping.
