    • Synopsis
    • After hooking up with Yago on a party, Giovana takes him to an apartment. Still drunk, they have sex and fall asleep on a hammock. On the following morning, they are awakened by sound alarms coming from the street, telling all to close their windows and doors immediately. Scared, they quickly close all the air entrances on the apartment.
      When they turn on the television and find out that a pink toxic cloud appeared at dawn on several cities throughout the world and is expanding. There is still no information on its composition, but it is known that people die within 10 seconds after being in contact with it. Giovana and Yago, who until them barely knew each other, are forced to get to know one another better and wait for the cloud to dissipate. Together on this dangerous and unprecedented situation, a complicity is formed among them, who initially adapt to the forced isolation. However, the cloud persists more than everyone anticipated. After a few months around the building, hope for its dissipation starts to diminish.
      Both communicate with close friends and family through the internet. Rui, Yago’s sick father, is locked at home with a nurse he dislikes. Caetana, Giovana’s younger sister, is confined to a sleepover with three other friends. Sara, Giovana’s friend, is alone at home and misses her boyfriend. Yago and Giovana try to help them on the most stressful moments, but the physical distance disrupts the relationships and makes everything more sufferable.
      After two years in confinement, the characters can’t perform the same actions over and over again. To look at the same person on the same environment every day starts to be a small torture they cannot escape from. As an attempt to change routine and start a new stage, they decide to have a child, who they name Lino.
      The family’s routine starts to be completely guided by online classes and instructions. All they require can be found online: dentists, gynecologists, plumbers, yoga instructors, psychologists, and teachers. However, accepting that the cloud can remain there forever is hard for Giovana. When the cloud’s appearance 10th anniversary comes close, Yago seems resigned, even happy, but Giovana refuses to get used to it.
