Vila Flávia, a forgotten slum of São Paulo, Brazil. Graffiti walls exhibit a main icon: a black mother protecting her children. Three families affected by the absence of a father: Macario has tattooed the portrait of Ms Edith on his chest. Fernando tattooed a Virgin Mary in honor of his mother, Ms Vera. Barão has been imprisoned for 8 years and bears the load of making Ms Fatima suffer. In homes without a father, a solitary mother acquires the aura of a holy warrior. Is it what these women want to be?
