Our Madness (João Viana)

Our Madness

João Viana

Lucy is hospitalized in a psychiatric hospital in Mozambique. She dreams about her little son and her husband, Pak, who is a soldier of the war. In the meantime, a quirky musical intrument plays: her own bed. Lucy’s musical virtuosity, attracts the attention of the hospital nurses. One day, her song is played in a radio program and an envangelical priest of “Rádio Moçambique”, goes to the hospital to listen Lucy’s song. Lucy takes the priest’s visit as an opportunity to run away from the hospital.
