Found Memories

Found Memories

Every morning, Madalena makes bread for Antonio's old coffee shop, crosses the railroad tracks where no trains have passed for years, cleans up the gate of the cemetery, and listens to the priest's sermon before sharing lunch with the other old villagers. Life here in Jotuomba proceeds as it has for decades, seemingly unchanged by time. Until one day, when a young photographer named Rita arrives, intent on capturing the magic of this little village. Madalena and the others treat her with suspicion at first, but soon a deep relationship is forged between the two women. But the village priest remains wary of Rita, especially when she begins to wonder how it is possible that the cemetery has remained closed for so long. In this forgotten corner of the world, Rita's arrival will have a profound effect on Madalena's life, and the lives of all the villagers.
