Translation of: Transparentes.
A gripping portrait of contemporary urban Africa - by turns magic realist, deeply emotional, and savagely satirical. In a crumbling apartment block in Luanda, impoverished families hoard memories to survive a corrupt regime. Odonato - nostalgic for the days of socialism - searches for his son, a petty criminal. As his hope drains away, Odonato's flesh becomes transparent and his body increasingly weightless.
