It's now seven months over my mother's death. I am facing the São Miguel island, the family land in the Azores. Between the newborn babies, I found my grandaunt, 91 years old, waiting for her moment to part. At night my family speaks to me of God and death. During the day we swim in the island's volcanic sea, where I find Florence and Hubert, a French couple that is crossing the Atlantic in the «Balaou», a sailing boat. They invite me to come with them. Devided in three moments and eight lessons, Balaou is a voyage to accept the oblivion of things. (Gonçalo Tocha)
