Slovenski opis filma:

Luziane, Cristiano in Bianca nimajo skoraj nič skupnega, razen tega, da živijo v istem podeželskem kraju v zahodni Braziliji, ki ga obkrožajo nasadi soje. Čeprav ne poznajo drug drugega, vsakogar prizadene Madalenino izginotje.Luziane, Cristiano in Bianca nimajo skoraj nič skupnega, razen tega, da živijo v istem podeželskem kraju v zahodni Braziliji, ki ga obkrožajo nasadi soje. Sredi enega od teh nasadov obleži mrtva transseksualna ženska Madalena. Luziane v revnem predelu živi brez večjih pričakovanj o boljši prihodnosti, medtem ko pomaga materi pri delu. V ograjeni skupnosti na drugi strani mesta skuša Christiano dokazati svoji družini, da je sposoben skrbeti za očetove plantaže soje. Spet drugje se Bianca in drugi pripadniki transseksualne skupnosti vsak po svoje spopadajo z žalovanjem za Madaleno, kakor najbolje znajo. Čeprav ne poznajo drug drugega, vsakogar prizadene Madalenino izginotje in njen duh postane vezni člen med njimi.

Originalni opis filma:

A broken body in a white dress, lying lifeless in a swaying soya field. The image of this motionless body lends an extra charge to everything that follows. Marcheti follows three protagonists in turn. They don't know one another, but are all in some way connected through Madalena. Luziane, a club hostess, knocks on her door for money. Wealthy Cristiano inspects the vast expanse of soya fields for his demanding father. Trans woman Bianca and her girlfriends divide Madalena's things between them while reminiscing. Marcheti shot the film in the agrarian region where he grew up, capturing with great visual flair this largely unfilmed rural part of Brazil. A place where big agricultural machinery crawls monster-like across the landscape and the farthest corners are known only to drones. A world that can also take on a spooky aspect - now and then, Marcheti inventively gives an eerie twist to even the most everyday scene. Madalena is above all a window on a world that is getting out of control. But Marcheti is also clearly making a statement about his country, which has the highest rate of murder of transgender people in the world. A plea for empathy, rather than pity.
