Synopsis

In 2011, Oriane leaves France to commit with Marreco, her Brazilian companion, to an alternative life in rural Brazil. Guided by the dream of creating an anti-capitalist utopia and building her own mud house, she films in first person the challenges encountered during a seven-year adventure. Animated scenes are superimposed on the filmed images, symbolizing the couple's dreams and anxieties. The backdrop is the political situation in Brazil, and the collective, self-managed organization in which the couple will try to find a way out.
