A portuguese officer supposedly dead in a mine explosion, is captured by the african guerrilla in Guiné (former portuguese colony) while his beloved wife Laura remain inconsolable in Portugal trying to believe that Jorge is still alive. Meanwhile an old Laura friend, a lieutenant, tries to convince Laura that Jorge is dead. Eduardo has always been a secret Laura lover. The romance between them is however darkened with the phantom shadow of Jorge hanging over them...

SIC, the portuguese number one private TV channel won again. This was one more of their sponsored TV movies, based on the portuguese colonial war emotional dramas in the seventies.

With a very good performance of Catarina Furtado in the role of Laura, she finally achieves the maturity everyone has been waiting for. Her prior appearances in cinema were not very convincing ("Pesadelo Cor-de-Rosa", "Lampião da Estrela"). This time she proves her drama qualities (if still needed) emerging as a major movie actress.
