Francisca, a young Portuguese woman living in Brazil, welcomes Teresa, an old acquaintance she’d lost contact with, into her home.

The film follows each woman’s adventures in the city and the deep bond of friendship that grows between them, forcing them to deal with conflicting desires: a will to leave for an unknown country and a relentless longing for home.
