A rubber tire floats downstream Rio das Mortes, in South Amazonia, where rubber is originally from. A researcher follows the traces of her aunt Maria, one of the first female explorers in that region more than a century ago, back in the 1940s. Five performers dressed in latex suits in a black cube, with rubber tires as props read historical and original texts, they discuss them, they take turns representing different characters of the story, they build barricades and plot an interspecies political alliance with a mutant fungus that not only has the power to kill, but also to regenerate.
