This story about the transfiguration, told in a simple way, is a shared facing with freedom, love, will, fight, the life and death. The visual, verbal and musical narration are weaving a text, which is becoming a witness of a different birth, faced in the accomplishment to preserve the melody of a history, and to write in the new values of the community which inherits and rewards.
