Heliconia is textures (those of the film), colors (those of nature), heat (that of summer) and bodies (hanging from trees, eating mangoes). A synesthetic symphony where fourteen-year-old Maria goes in search of paradise on Earth with her brother and his friend Adrian.

It’s one of those summers that feel eternal. Heat waves can be seen in the distance, the wind is warm as it brushes the skin. Maria is dangling in a tree branch, a lifetime in each moment. Maria, her brother and his friend Adrian drive endlessly looking for paradise. Could paradise be as simple as eating a freshly picked mango from a tree, or do we have to keep looking? (Rui Mendes)
