Portugal. Today. This film speaks of the ties that bind us as human beings. Despite all obstacles that untangle us and make us more and more isolated, there are small ties that persist, feelings so strong that endure beyond what we could expect. In this film we will watch pieces of constant fighting, care management, fragments of what used to be huge families and now are barely surviving in the destiny that has caught them. Some resist and fight back others let themselves go and give up.
