While Itapuã performes, Ella (Isabel Zua) shoots every step of this adventure with her camera. However, being in contact with different cultures awakens Ella’s desire of becoming a master herself. As Ella embraces the idea of not being behind the camera anymore, her relationship with her master faces strong transformations.
