When Nego discovers that the cacao farm where he lives and works on is going to be sold, he must face not only the loss of his home and job, but also the daily contact he has with the land he cherishes so much. The film deals with the hierarchical and co-dependent relationship between employer and employee, within the context of a developing country where the power one holds over the other is often unconscionable.
