Fatima, a 70-years-old Angolan nurse, after years working in Portugal decides to return to her home country. She wants to initiate a humanitarian health mission in the south of Angola, one of the most affected regions by the recent civil war. Here, in a landscape of ruins and abandoned tanks, lies the city Menongue where Fatima discovers the problems of inner Africa. It is necessary to recover the local hospital that doesn’t have flowing water or oxygen. The smell of garbage and death infiltrates into people’s skin and soul. You have to believe in something to be able to face the next day.
