Miguel is a successful economist until his father's death plunges him into a strange obscure world of fears, eerie sounds and psychological isolation. He quits his job, drifts away from his wife and initiates a process of physical disintegration. He will touch the bottom before he starts seeing the light. And, as an echo to his journey, we follow, faraway in the countryside, the story of a crime and its redemption, the story of António and Cecília. From death to the miracle of life, here on earth.
