A romantic drama in three acts: the skilfully told story of a couple that go on a fascinating journey through three different epochs and settings. A psychiatric clinic in Portugal. Pedro, a patient, tells three stories. The first is about Dom Pedro in the 14th century. He is a pretender to the Portuguese throne and falls in love with Inês, his maidservant, who is later murdered. When he becomes king, he has her grave dug up and crowns her as his posthumous queen. Flash forward to the present: Pedro and Inês share an office as architects – and become lovers in a Dystopian future in which people are fleeing the cities for the countryside.
