This series takes us through suburban city life in 80's Portugal. In a country that just came straight out of a military revolution, in a very fragile economical situation and essentially still stuck in the past, we follow the lives of 3 young men who want to change mentalities. They form a revolutionary rock band and, absorbing the style and examples of both the US and Western Europe, who at the time were at least 20 years ahead, they will shake everything in its past. An amazingly creative and rhythmical period piece, where everything feels as vintage as it should. A true work of rebellion and ambition that everyone, regardless of their nationality, should see.
