Synopsis

The word Mutum either refers to a kind of tropical bird that sings at night; it can also mean ‘mute’. Mutum is also the name of a small town in Brazil’s semi-arid hinterland where 10-year-old Thiago is growing up. He lives with his family; the strange universe of grown-ups never ceases to amaze him.
