A feverish drama in which two shadowy figures meet in a city in decline.
The night Robert and Teresa meet seems never-ending. What follows is an emotional switchback and a somnambulistic trip through the dark streets of Belo Horizonte: the pair get close, but circumstances soon force them to part again. But before that happens, they try to retake the public space which politics force them to leave. Memories, dreams and dark inklings merge to offer a transient promise of happiness.
