Ida e Volta
Having as reference the Colonial War, the last breath of a colonial Portugal, worn and tired, memories are rebuilt, in an attempt to create a new soul and an outside understanding. From those who went defend their country, to the ones who had to run away, there's a taboo memory which reflects a dawn of new meanings the distance allows to touch.
