Aquilo que eu nunca perdi tells the story of Alzira E, a pioneering artist from a small town close to the Brazilian Pantanal and the Paraguayan border, one of the country's most conservative and patriarchal places. She has broken barriers all her life and became a role model in the urban and underground scene of São Paulo, where she migrated as a young mother of five children. Alzira E: a 63-year-old rock band leader, and a woman ahead of her time.
