Plot Summary

August is the time of holidays and village festivals in the Portuguese countryside. Emigrants and city-dwellers return to their native village. We follow fifteen-year-old Tânia, a fire warden and singer in Domingos',her father's band, and the amorous complications with her cousin Hélder. Her mother, Helder's aunt disappeared some time ago and she resembles her very much. It is a secret between father and daughter. Against the background of Portuguese rural life with his Portuguese sorrows, the relationship between Tânia and her father turns out to be not so pure. Written by Movie Meter
