Synopsis

For a long time, three old women have been working as keeners in burials and funerals in an Amazonian rainforest little town. They sing to exalt the families’ suffering. The harmonious and peaceful calm life of the city lasts until the day that a dead vanishes. The keeners are accused. Should we really be suspicious about these ladies?
