Documentary | 2018 | 80min
A Bolivian family leaves their country, their culture, and their traditions behind; distancing themselves from the Pachamama in search of the God that can be found in the big cities, the "Platamama". The documentary follows the family of immigrants living in São Paulo and working in the sewing industry for big clothing brands. Showing their daily routine, the film portrays a work-centered life under precarious circumstances: they are neither in their native land nor in any land, where consumerism and dreams are their only escape from reality.
