While a teenage boy learns how to drive, a woman walks her elderly dog through the woods. As evening sets in, she realises it’s not too late to take action, and an exploration of intimacy and loneliness unfolds. 


André Santos (Lisbon, 1984) and Marco Leão (Lisbon, 1984) started working together in 2008. Their previous short film, Má Raça (2013), was screened at l'Alternativa and won the GAC Prize.
