"Realizado de 1988 a 1991, no Estado do Rio, a filme procura condensar, em personagens e situacoes do presente, a experiencia negra no Brasil, a partir de dois eixos--as criacoes do imaginario, sobrefudo na religiao e na musica, e a realidade do racismo, responsavel pela perda de identidade ethica e pelo marginalizacao de boa parte dos cerca de 60 milhoes de brasileiros de origem africana.
