Night Shine is a portrait in sound of the festive ritual of the Bumba-Boi, that is originally from Maranhão, but that also takes place annually in the city of São Paulo. As the film interweaves, stories and songs are interpreted by Ana Maria Carvalho, and we follow the initiation of the young boy Ariel as he learns the art of living... at the beat of the tambourine!
