A film dedicated to Zumbi dos Palmares and to all Maroons dead and alive. It portrays the life of a not very well known character who was 72 years old at the time, a union leader, founder of Escola de Samba Império Serrano and a stevedore at the Rio de Janeiro port. The motivation to make this short-film came from researching the origins of Imperio Serrano and especially to perpetuate the dignity of samba, the militant’s work and reflect on this character’s solitude at the end of his life.
