In a house, the last trace of a Lisbon that has long disappeared, Guilherme and Sofia grow up sharing experiences and slowly discovering their sexuality. Guilherme, sheltered in a female universe, unable to deal with the uncorresponded love of his sister and her relationships with other boys, ends up running away. After the death of his grandmother Clara, Guilherme refugees himself in his father's house, who is immersed in a almost autistic world, which leaves him increasingly isolated.

This movie moves itself in a difficult subject such as the teenagers' awakening for sexuality and which here involves even an incest which goes on being socially and according to the morals in force, a forbidden love. It succeeds however in presenting a story in which authenticity combines with a certain poetry. We have before us a family more or less dissolved such as it is commonplace in our current times. Divorced parents and two teenager children (Sofia and Guilherme) in the usual ping-pong between father and mother although there is no animosity between the latter. There is also a more or less bohemian grandmother who amuses herself playing poker with friends. In this uncertain and loose atmosphere that forbidden love between brother and sister springs up and after a few encounters and missings ends up in a climax which has the above mentioned authenticity and poetry and even some beauty although realistic in sexual terms. This is all told through suggestive images, short and simple dialogues and a serene but efficacious cut. The acting is reasonably good too. Not a masterpiece but just a good movie anyway
