Two directors leave for Macao, embarking on a journey of discovery in a fascinating, multicultural labyrinth-city. The Oriental childhood memories of one of them – fictionalized recollections of a vivid reality – enter into dialogue with the other’s memories of the Orient, built on the codes of cinema, literature and painting – vivid memories of a fictionalized reality. The result is an album of physical and emotional geography, structured like an investigation disguised as a Film Noir, where the puzzle of the narrative challenges reality and fictionalizes it.

(João Pedro Rodrigues, João Rui Guerra da Mata)
