The culture of people of African descent is at the center of the narrative of the series “Kiss on the Flower”. The Beija-Flor de Nilópolis and the invitation to the 2020 carnival made by Mazzim Mazamba, composer of the school's samba plot, is the starting point for the meeting between Bahian journalist Kithi and Oba Adê do Oyotunji, an African village located in the United States United. The series narrates the sacred connections that unite Rio de Janeiro, Bahia and South Carolina around the same subject: the black people. Starting from the Beija-Flor block to the streets of Rio, the series mixes unusual encounters, conversations, interviews, history and a lot of samba.
