In the sweltering summer of 1938, with Lisbon in the grip of
Portugal's fascist dictatorship, out of nowhere a young man arrives
on an elderly widower's doorstep. Lonely and overweight, Dr Pereira
lives a quiet, monotonous existence. But when the charismatic
Monteiro Rossi bursts into his life, everything changes. Seeing in
him the son he never had, Pereira strikes up an unlikely alliance
that will result in his political awakening and a devastating act
of rebellion. This is his testimony.
