Brazil, 2022. In a remote area in São Paulo’s countryside, a rural family who lives beside a charcoal factory accepts a proposal to host a mysterious foreigner. The mother, her husband and child will have to learn how to share the same roof with this stranger, while keeping up appearances of an unchanged peasant routine.
★★★★ "Markowicz maintains a tight grip on the tone, keeping it just on the biting point between black comedy and agonising suspense." - The Guardian
★★★★ "The performances are note-perfect, the tension consistent." - The Times
