Forty-five-year-old Justino is a Desana Tribe native working as a security guard in a freight yard on the harbor in the industrial city of Manaus, surrounded by the Amazon rainforest. He lives on the outskirts of town in a modest house with his youngest daughter, Vanessa, who works a nurse in a local clinic. When she is accepted into a program to study medicine in Brasília, Justino is suddenly overcome with a mysterious fever that won't subside. It causes him to fall asleep on the job and gives him hallucinations of an unidentifiable creature following him in the night. Far from the native village that he left two decades ago and with a looming empty nest, Justino feels utterly out of place.
