Like every morning, Madalena makes bread for Antonio’s old coffee shop. Like every day, she crosses the railways where no trains have passed foryears; she cleans up the gate of the locked cemetery, and listens to the priest’s sermon before sharing lunch with the other few old villagers left in town. Clinging to the image of her dead husband and living in her memories. Madalena is awakened by the arrival of Rita, a young photographer warriving in the ghost village of Jotuomba, where time seems to have stopped. A deep relationship is forged between the two women, which gradually builds to have a profound effect on both of their lives, as well as the rest of the villagers.
