Girimunho tells the story of Bastu, an 81-year-old lady who lives in a village in the interior of Brazil, and who after the death of her husband tries to create her new life. Departing from a real city and its people, the film explores their rich imaginary, poetic and magic universe to talk about human relationships, pointing to the coexistence of traditions and contemporary life, reality and dream, life and death, dissolving the limits between these concepts.
