In a country which has lived through so much political and historical turmoil, it matters a lot for families to invest enormous effort and savings in the building of their home. The film explores how their initiative and the rapid expansion of Maputo both solves but also threatens people’s dreams of owning a permanent home. Catarina, Mayla, Maria, Francesco and Teresa all have a different use and way of life of the bairros. By entering their life we get an insight of their understanding of what is a home and what is at stake.
