In 1910, pregnant Áurea (Torres) along with her mother, Maria (Montenegro) arrive at a remote, desert-like part of the Brazilian state of Maranhão—called the Lençóis Maranhenses—where her fanatical husband Vasco de Sá (Ruy Guerra) has relocated the family from the state's capital, São Luís, to start a farm. Soon the white settlers realize that they are not alone: a group of descendants of runaway slaves live in the area, in a settlement—generally known as a quilombo—they call "The Island" because it is the only permanently fertile spot in a sea of sand where it rains only during the rainy season. Due to the madness of Vasco, Maria seeks to bribe the black settlers to take her and her daughter away, but they, while taking her money (it is basically useless in the local barter economy), do no such thing.

Darlene, une femme courageuse et intuitive, revient dans son village natal, à Russas, situé dans une région reculée du Nordeste au Brésil, avec un bébé venu d'on ne sait où. Elle avait fui sa campagne pour un mariage qui n'a pas eu lieu. Le vieil Osias lui propose de l'épouser. Démunie et seule, elle accepte. Darlene s'occupe de tout, travaille à la plantation, laissant son époux à son oisiveté maladive. Lorsque ce dernier recueille son cousin, Zezinho, Darlene succombe au charme de ce nouveau venu et tombe enceinte. Elle accumule alors les maris sous le toit familial avec l'arrivée du jeune et beau Ciro. Chacun finit par s'accommoder de l'embarrassante mais pittoresque situation : les époux successifs apprennent à faire le deuil de leur machisme.
