Synopsis

Thiago is a sensitive and imaginative boy living on a small, hardscrabble farm in a remote region of Brazil. His life is filled not only with curiosity and youthful discovery, but also the reality of his parent’s unhappy marriage and his father’s abuse, all of which are one changed one day by a chance encounter and unexpected gift. Mutum tells a bittersweet story of one boy’s coming-of-age amidst events both great and small.

A poetic adaptation of the Brazilian story Campo Geral by João Guimarães Rosa.
