Mutum means mute and a black bird that sings at night. It's also the name of a remote place in the Brazilian hinterland, where our protagonist Thiago lives with his family. Ten year-old Thiago is different from the other kids. Through his eyes we see the hazy world of adulthood – a world of betrayal, violence and silence. Along with Felipe, his brother and only friend, Thiago will face this world, discovering that one must learn to live in it in order to survive.
