At a fancy apartment in São Paulo, Ana, in search of a nanny for her unborn child, hires Clara, an African-Brazilian nurse. As opposed to more qualified candidates, Clara is selected because of her ability to respond instinctively during Ana’s episode of unexpected pain and provide a calming presence. Despite differing backgrounds, the wealthy single mother-to-be and lonely nurse form a strong friendship. On the eve of a full moon, Ana begins experiencing strange symptoms that complicate their relationship. Transitioning from drama to fantasy, the dark fable exposes racial tensions and class differences in contemporary Brazil.
