A 22 year old girl decides to return to the year of 1972 to meet historic singer and poet José Afonso.
In an unremitting struggle for the perfect plan, a series of failed attempts follows. As a kind of epiphany, messages encoded in poems appear. Unlikely phone calls. An archivist who works inside the wardrobe. It’s a long story.
This girl who believes she can time travel is me. I need to rescue my hero from the past so that he can help me deal with the future. There’s a problem: he passed away 10 years before I was born, in the parish where he lived his last years, Azeitão. That’s where I’ve lived my whole life.
Zeca and I walked through the same gardens, ate the same rice muffins at the central cafe, without ever sitting at the same table. Life was committed to keep us away. It seems that now we will have to do the opposite.
