After fourteen years away from her homeland, Salomé is forced to return to Cape Verde to see her dying brother. During her stopover at Lisbon airport, Águeda, a cleaning lady, recognizes Salomé as "Mila", her childhood friend. Águeda invites Salomé to leave the airport and spend the stopover at her home, with the women of her family. The neighborhood transports her on a spiritual journey, whose destination reveals a painful bond with her homeland.
Locarno is… a place where we celebrate the essence of cinema, with stories about what brings us together and at the same time makes us different. The act of watching movies unites viewers, and the screen becomes a means to observe the world and our own humanity.
