In the 1980s, the largest hydroelectric dam in the Amazon forest was built in the city of Tucuruí in order to supply power to the aluminum industry. Forty years later, the people living in the archipelago of the Caraipé River, within the plant’s reservoir, still have no access to electricity in their homes. A filmmaker and his crew arrive at the scene to shoot the outcomes of man’s quest for development reflected on a community that has been living with traces of deforestation for decades.
