Mining material from his films Ossos and No quarto da Vanda, filmmaker Pedro Costa revisits the Cape Verdean slums of Lisbon to create this cascading semi-documentary whittled down from 320 hours of footage to two and a half. He follows Ventura, one of the last to be moved from the slums to a clinical apartment block. Ventura's story is also that of those around him, various men and women (possibly even his children) who have burdens to verbally unload on him.
