Soon after learning of the death of his mother Pérola, Mauro returns to his old family home in Bauru (São Paulo, Brazil). A look back into his mother’s peculiar habits, her illusions, sense of humor, spirituality, and desire to control all things... with the love and tenderness that only distance and time allow. A reunion between mother and son: their conflicts, conversations, and dreams of a better life all converge in constructing a swimming pool in their backyard. It is a portrait of an ordinary family that fights, makes up, celebrates, cries, and carries on, full of stories just like any other.
