SYNOPSIS

Two mining tailings dams break in Brazil, causing the country's worst-ever socio-environmental disasters. A young dancer flees to Portugal and an environmentalist is thrust into the media spotlight. Meanwhile, a school teacher keeps watch at night for the imminent break of a third dam that can bury his town in an estimated eight seconds.
