Mascaro's first narrative work is a sultry, richly sensorial meditation on sex, death, and decay in the tropics. In a remote seaside village, a steamy love affair between a city girl (Dandara de Morais) and a country boy (Geova Manoel dos Santos) unfolds on a lush coconut farm until their languor is interrupted by a chilling discovery. Though working from a script, Mascaro's documentary impulse prevails in his attention to the tempestuous meteorology and weather-beaten landscapes of coastal Brazil in the climate-change era. Through stunningly composed images, he creates a haunting portrait of a place where life can be washed away at any moment.
