Francisca is a Portuguese woman who has been living in Belo Horizonte, Brazil for a year. Francisca is not best pleased when an old acquaintance, Teresa, turns up and moves in for a while. There was every reason for them losing touch - Teresa is a babbling ball of energy, whereas the solitary Francisca much prefers peace and quiet.
Nevertheless, it turns out to be a good combination, and a close friendship is hesitantly formed. At the same time, Teresa awakens in Francisca a desire for her homeland; she misses Lisbon and, with her 30th birthday looming, needs to decide where she wants to grow old. As Teresa enthusiastically finds her way in a new country and city, Francisca already seems to be saying goodbye.


This event is part of the Liverpool Iberian & Latin American Film Festival taking place from Thursday 26 October - Friday 3 November 2017.

This event is supported by Instituto Camões.
