On the eve of the Muslim festival of Eid, Narguiss, who ‘never wanted anything to do with politics’, is more preoccupied with family problems than with the radio news of kidnappings and murders. Nearby, Leia, Januário and their young daughter are caught up in the pleasure and security of finally finding a flat of their own, while Mena, who was once the beauty of her village, overhears her husband plotting murder. Before dawn, these innocent people seeking to lead peaceful lives are thrown together in a vicious conspiracy to infiltrate and destabilize Mozambique. Skilfully weaving together present events and age-old traditions through narrative “snapshots,” Lília Momplé gives us, in the drama of a few short hours, an insight into the consequences of Mozambique’s complex history.
