Mutum means mute. Mutum is a black bird. And Mutum is also the name of a remote region in the Brazilian mountains, where Thiago and his family live. Thiago, who is ten, is not an ordinary child. Through his eyes, we glimpse the gloomy word of the adults: betrayal, violence, silence. With his brother and only friend Felipe, Thiago must confront this world that he will learn to leave behind.
