A heat wave invades Portugal, the air is dry and the forests burn. The death of a young man is unrelated to the fires, but Chico tries not to think about it. It's time for local festivities, time to mingle with friends. Triggered by a first-person narration, this fiction film directed by Tomás Paula Marques explores the construction of masculinities impelled by heterosexual normativity, always haunted by bodies produced through their own wavering.
