Taina 3 - 3ªS - II 145

The film tells the story of Tainá, a 5 years old orphan Indian girl who dreams of becoming a warrior and discovering her true origin. Along the way, she makes unexpected friends such as Laura, a lost city girl, and Gobi, a nerdy Indian boy. They learn to overcome their mutual differences while going through their eventful journey. Tainá confronts the ancestral enemy of her family, Jurupari, the incarnation of Evil, who wants to destroy the Forest.  The film is 100% shot in the Amazon Rainforest, with strong and charming images of people and animals in their real environment, which inspired the original soundtrack executed by the Orchestra of Prague, with Carlinhos Brown (Rio) singing the main theme.
