Francisca is a young Portuguese woman who’s been living in Brazil for a year. At her mother’s behest, she welcomes Teresa - a fellow citizen she’d lost contact with - into her home. While Teresa is enthralled discovering Belo Horizonte, where she means to settle and escape the crisis that has taken over her homeland, Francisca decides to go back to Lisbon. The film follows each woman’s adventures in the city and the deep bond of friendship that grows between them, forcing them to deal with conflicting desires: a will to leave for an unknown country and a relentless longing for home.
