Brazilian bossa nova singer Miúcha, who died in December 2018 at age 81, was under-appreciated and under-recognized. Director Daniel Zarvos, her cousin, and co-director Liliane Mutti tell her story by using personal letters, journals, audio diaries, home movies and the singer’s watercolour drawings (animated for the film).
