Sinopsis
Pyrite has run out in the old mining complex of São Domingos. But in this semi-abandoned territory, which is a national heritage site, life persists. Is a vision of the future important for the present of this small village? Observing life unfold in Mina de São Domingos, the film offers an utopian path towards the future of this territory and its community.
