This is the latest film from Miguel Gomes, one of the most distinctive directors in contemporary cinema. We start in Lisbon, where Aurora, on her deathbed, asks to see Ventura, of whom no-one has heard before. When he arrives, his story takes us back to 50 years before when he and Aurora were lovers in Africa. What we see is the history of their illicit love affair, set against Portugal's colonisation of Africa.
