LaCand captures scenes that are connected with the history of that place, the wolfram mines of Rio de Frades during World War II. These narrated realities and other dreamed have generate a scene in which a group of local women around a ritual oracle repeatedly chant the lament “ai”. In a second part and in voice-off is suggested a narrative that relates the mining activities in which part of those women, the oldest, participated.
