A deceased doctor (Renato Prieto) is taken out of purgatory and brought to a spirit colony, where he learns about the afterlife. (Based on a book automatically written by famed Chico Xavier of Brazil, from which he has written over 400 books in his lifetime (see more about Chico below).

The selfish Dr. André Luiz dies and awakes in a kind of limbo called “Umbral”. After a painful and numb period in a gruesome swamp, he is rescued and brought to “Nosso Lar” (meaning “Our Home”), a spiritual city. He finds a place of harmony, where people live in peace, working for the good of humanity, for the self evolution and awaiting for reincarnation. Sooner André Luiz changes his behavior becoming a more self aware and altruist man.
