    • Synopsis
    • Pedro and Rui have been lovers for a year. They kiss passionately while making vows of endless love. Later, Pedro has a brutal car acident and dies in Rui's arms. All by himself, Rui feels hopeless and lost, with no taste for living.
      But the love of Pedro and Rui is eternal.
      Odete works as skate-stewardess in a supermarket. When Odete insists in getting pregnant, her lover, Alberto, runs away. He
      doesn’t want to compromise. All by herself, Odete lives in a delusive world. Her dream of having a baby becomes an obsession.
      When she gets home, Odete sees Pedro’s mother, Teresa, leaving to mourn her son. Odete hardly knew Pedro, an upper-floor
      neighbour, but, in a sudden impulse, she dresses in black and follows her into the funeral chapel. Her sadness for Alberto’s break
      up makes her weep Pedro's death. Odete transfers to the dead boy’s body her sorrow for Alberto’s disappearance and sinks into
      illusion.
      Pedro’s phantom is calling her…
