Retirement is coming soon for Luís Rovisco. The songs he dreams up during the day make up for all the injustices in his life. But standing before the receptionist Lucinda, he finds himself singing to a different tune.
Luís Rovisco is a divorced man about to retire from a security systems company. He lives alone with his cat. Although it may seem difficult to make a film with such material, João Nicolau creates nothing less than a musical on wheels, sung by a non-professional actor and mature debutante. Between absurd situations and a dislocated and impassive humor, the last chance of love passes in front of Luís’s eyes while modern security boxes and safety gates turn back on him, in a film in which there is room even to evoke the Spanish band Las Ketchup.
