Lisbon, 1971

Olívia (Deslandes/Tinoco) and Francisco (Diogo Branco) meet and fall in love in an amateur theater group that is producing a musical version of Romeo and Juliet. Olívia has strong political ideals that are reflected in her active opposition to the dictatorship. Francisco is an introverted boy, he dreams of being a comedy actor – he believes that laughter is the most effective weapon of subversion – and he goes to rehearsals in secret, because his father does not approve of his artistic aspirations. Wanted by PIDE, for selling books banned by censorship, Olívia takes refuge in Paris to escape prison, oblivious to the fact that Francisco was deployed to war. In France, Olivia sings in a bar. In Africa, Francisco tries to survive. They meet years later, on the day of the April 25th revolution.

Can we meet the right person at the wrong time?

Does love move mountains, or is burning passion just left in ashes?
