An old Brazilian legend says that Saudade was created by the African gods to ensure that enslaved people wouldn't forget their loved ones and their homeland. Triggered by her father's illness, the Afro-Brazilian filmmaker, Denize Galiao, explores her deep feelings for her home and her roots, which she does not want to lose after 20 years of living in Germany. The word Saudade, which cannot be translated into any other language, is the red line through the story of a family that lives between two different cultures.
