João Barbelas, a poor tramp, earns his meagre living as a puppeteer. One day he meets the girl of his dreams, Maria, a young woman with a past as sad as her eyes. Together they squat in an old abandoned house, which they see as their castle, until the day when they are faced with the harsh reality. But they have each other, their endless tenderness, and the capacity to dream. A cult film in the story of Portuguese Cinema with the great actor Raul Solnado.
