A nurse, Mariana, accompanies Leao to his home on the volcanic islands of Cape Verde after an accident sends him into a coma. Yet he goes unrecognized by fellow denizens, leaving Mariana trapped with and eventually entranced by a mysterious community. Never before released in the U.S. and now beautifully restored, it foreshadows the masterful films that would follow, yet is an extraordinary, ravishing work in its own right.
