In the outskirts of Belo Horizonte, Brazil, favelas are given female names. Juliana Antunes and her almost entirely female crew settle in a neighbourhood called “Juliana” to film two friends, just when Andreia is about to leave Juliana and move to the neighbouring slum called “Baronesa”.
Andreia wants to move out. Leid is waiting for her husband, who is in prison. They are neighbors in a poor suburban slum of Belo Horizonte, trying to escape the daily dangers of a drug traffic war happening on the outside and avoid the tragedy that comes with the rain.
