Miguel is a successful economist until his father’s death plunges him into an obscure world of fears, strange sounds and psychological isolation. He quits his job, drifts away from his wife and initiates a process of physical disintegration. He will reach the bottom before he starts seeing the light. As an echo to his journey, we follow the story of a crime and its redemption, the story of António and Cecília. From death to the miracle of life, here on Earth.
