Deep in the jungle of Mato Grosso, in the upper course of the Xingu, this sparkling documentary follows preparations for a Jamurikumalu ritual: a festival of singing and dancing that is only performed by women. The problem is that the only woman who knows all the songs is seriously ill. Because he fears that his spouse does not have much longer to live, an old Indian asks his cousin whether his wife would like to perform the Jamurikumalu one more time. It’s the ritual dance of the native population of the Upper Xingu, who live in the centre of Brazil. The sick wife wants nothing more than to sing along with the women of the village one more time. The preparations are started, but the only woman who knows all the lyrics is far from healthy too.
