This is the visual translation of what synthesizes the folk festival of the Bumba meu Boi. The story of the farmer and his daughter who owned a beloved ox. However, the wife of the farm foreman, pregnant, feels like eating the tongue of the favorite ox and causes her husband, 'old Chico', to kill him. The devastated farmer seeks help from indigenous healers who resurrect the ox and peace is restored with the return of the ox. In Parintins, a city in the interior of the Amazon in Brazil, two oxen present this story under different themes each year in a kind of open-air opera to compete for the title of champion of the Festival Folclórico de Parintins.
