Romances de Terre et d'Eau is a documentary about farmers in the Nordeste region of Brazil who fight with great nobility and humor for their economic survival as well as the preservation of their culture's imaginative and recreational force. For these farmers of Indian origin, the "roça", the place where plants, vegetables and rice are grown (what a family needs to ensure its future), could be paradise on earth if the land belonged to them. The "roça" is the place where all their myths are born, past and future. They keep them alive with poetry, music, creations in clay and dance so they can pass on the "job of living" to their children.
