Pregnant Juma (Alanis Guillen) suffers a second grief for her mother Maria Marruá (Juliana Paes) since the jaguar she was enchanted with was killed. During a trip from Jove (Jesuíta Barbosa) to Campo Grande, the girl will return to her tapera just to see how things are going. There you will meet the Velho do Rio (Osmar Prado).
“I came by boat, I didn’t come by horse, no,” she will say.
“You did well. If you come on horseback, you could hurt this girl,” he will reveal.
“Girl, old man?” asks the girl, shocked.
“Your little girl will be a girl… (…) And I’ll be here waiting for her like I told you…”

Juma will then ask about the killed jaguar, the same one his mother had inhabited.
“I’m asking that because I’ve never heard them beating up around my house.”
“No, Juma, it wasn’t your mother, no. When they killed the guinea fowl, your mother was gone.”
“Where is she now?”
“There are no answers to certain questions. But take good care of the leopard you’re carrying in your belly,” he reveals, walking mysteriously as ever.
“A leopard. Ara… Will the mother come back to me?”
