Luís Filipe Rocha
We are in Macao in the epoch of the Portuguese occupation: a young man is a "bon-vivant", he has no respect for anybody, his life is a continuous race of alcohol, bets and paid sex. But he made a mistake: he mocked a young lady, not attractive at all, and he felt in disgrace with the high society of Macao and he was recommended to leave the town. Then he wanders around and contracts a disease quite similar to leprosy that specially affects to feet and toes and produces several wounds and a stinky smell. But the miracle becomes: the same ugly lady gets charge of him with the opposition of her family and the society.
