Tchinda is one of most beloved women in Cape Verde, especially after she came out as a transgender person in the local newspaper in 1998. Since then, her name has become the term used by locals to name queer Cape Verdeans. Despite her great reputation, Tchinda remains humble and every afternoon she happily tours the neighborhood to sell her best "coxinhas", a classic Brazilian treat: delicious fried balls of chicken. But every February all changes. It's the month leading up to their Carnival, when the slow-paced atmosphere of the island transforms into a frenzied hustle and bustle as thousands flock to the streets. The days before the Carnival are hectic. Locals join forces to create something beautiful out of nothing. It becomes a Little Brazil as their most acclaimed singer, Cesária Évora (1941-2011), defined in one of her most famous "mornas". This documentary is as trip to an unknown side of Africa that very few may have ever imagined.
