In Medusa, Anita Rocha da Silveira’s Brazil is a state dominated by the forces of Christianity and fascism, where a group of young evangelicals function as a force of oppression, attacking any woman they consider “impure” or threatening in the face of the dogma they glorify. But not everything goes without resistance, even within this group of zealots, and Mariana, a young nursing student, begins to question everything she believes in.
