On the balcony of a Lisbon hotel, a woman sits looking out to sea, watching a ship move away into the distance. This story of lost love and a journey to Rio de Janeiro continues themes dear to the director, who, since he began making films in 2000, has explored issues around memory, the passage of time and the search for self-knowledge.
