Ingeborg Bachmann encounters Paul Celan in post-war Vienna.

An apartment building in Lisbon’s Bairro das Colónias, a mother and a daughter, the aerial roots of a tropical plant which dangle down the stairwell from the top floor. Fatumata and Aissato talk, converse; the daughter translates the mother’s language and interprets conversations about love and happiness. And from the fifth floor, where Luciana lives, the roots hang down to the third floor, where the women, originally from Guinea Bissau, live, and invade the screen, weaving a fabric of memories and hopes.
