Set in the capital city of Luanda, this documentary about the 2017 season of the Contemporary Dance Company of Angola focuses on five dancers who explore the concepts of tradition, culture, memory and identity. Most of the company members come from other provinces of the country and bring with them their memories and traditions when moving through the bustling, erratic and frantic reality of Luanda. In the process of documenting the rehearsal and performances, the film looks at how, in working creatively together, there is a need for the partial abdication of the self and the need to create a new identity, without rejecting what remains true and original along the different life paths we all travel.
