Synopsis

Beatriz married Henrique on the day of her 21st birthday. Henrique, a naval officer, would spend long periods at sea. Ashore, Beatriz, who learned everything from the verticality of plants, took great care of the roots of their six children. The oldest son, Jacinto (Hyacinth), my father, dreamed he could be a bird. One day, suddenly, Beatriz died. My mom didn’t die suddenly, but she too died when I was 17 years-old. On that day, me and my father met in the loss of our mothers and our relationship was no longer just that of father and daughter.

Sinopsis

Beatriz se vjenčala sa Henriqueom na svoj 21. rođendan. Henrique, pomorski oficir, znao je provoditi duže periode na pučini. Beatriz, koja je sve naučila iz vertikalnosti biljaka, brižno je njegovala korijene njihovo šestero djece. Najstariji sin Jacinto (Hyacinth), moj otac, sanjao je kako može biti ptica. Jednog dana, iznenada, Beatriz umire. Moja mama nije umrla naglo, ali je također preminula kada sam imala 17 godina. Tog dana, ja i moj otac susreli smo se u gubitki svojih majki i naša veza više nije bila ona između oca i kćerke.
