Roland „Mundungaze“ Pickl, an Austrian musician and producer who lives in Mozambique has founded „Positivo Mocambique“ together with rapper Helio D. Vanimal. The project uses music as media to draw attention to the disease AIDS. In dialogues, everday life scenes and trips through the country, the two musicians tell about the huge problems of Mocambique: There are still aftermaths of war, many people are poor, hungry and unemployed – and a lot of them suffer from HIV/AIDS. But BOM DIA INHAMBANE also tells about the beauty of the country and the positive influence of music on the people.

Mozambique, 1970s. The revolution has freed the country, and in the streets of Maputo prostitutes are collected, loaded onto buses and taken out to the countryside to a re-education camp. In the concentration camp military drill and field work are used to educate them to become the „new women“. Margarida is a 16-year-old girl who is accidentally taken to the camp. It is her story that we learn and the story of a group of women who are beginning to understand that the revolution does mean freedom, but a different kind.
