A few weeks before her wedding, Angolan born, Portugal residing Vitoria is a runaway bride back to an Angola she has no memory of. Desperate to connect with the mother she never knew, she establishes her base for her search at the home of a family friend who, with her twin daughters, introduce her to the three Luandas. A Luanda for the rich and powerful who are above rules. Another Luanda for the aspirational muddle class who are flattered by any proximity to the rich and powerful. And yet another for the povo doing what they can to eke out a living in a city that sees them buy chooses to ignore them. And what does the commanding, over-cologned, poetry-reciting General Zacarias Vindu know about her mother, a former independence Cadre? A radio announcement in the presence of a new friend will lead her from Luanda to Huambo where her journey will take unexpected turns and where her questions are answered. Will the answers be to her satisfaction?
