Short film based on a brazilian amazon folktale, which says that the amazon dolphin (boto) turns into a man and seduce women, making them pregnant. Even knowing it's a popular myth, some people really believe in that.

During our last amazon expedition, I met some interesting local inhabitants with great histories to share. This is one of them.

...Reza a lenda, que o boto cor-de-rosa amazonense, em noite de lua cheia se transforma num jovem belo e elegante. Atrai as mulheres solteiras para o fundo do rio para engravidá-las e depois as abandona. Há quem acredite que o boto vira gente!
