Leão, a Cape Verdian immigrant and a bricklayer in Lisbon, falls off the scaffolding and enters a deep coma. Arrangements are made for him to return to his homeland, in Cape Verde. A nurse, Mariana, eager for a change of scenery, volunteers to accompany him. When she arrives, nothing is like she expected. No one seems to be waiting for Leão or even to care for him. Mariana waits for someone to claim Leão and waits for him to wake up. She gets increasingly involved with the mysterious Fogo volcano community; the adventure begins…

I have dreamed so much of you,
Walked so often, talked so often with you,
Loved your shadow so much.
Nothing is left me of you.
Nothing is left of me but a shadow
among shadows,
A being a hundred times more shadowy
than a shadow,
A shadowy being who comes, and comes
again, in your sunlit life.
Robert Desnos, Last Poem (Terezina Concentration Camp, May 1945)

Screening presented by Nuno Crespo, critic and university professor, and Carlos Melo Ferreira, researcher and university professor
