More than fifty years later the protagonist meets Maria José again. She used to be a maid at his parents' house, when he was a child. From her he has heard the most implausible stories. She was then eighteen and he was about six. The young woman became an elderly lady: a wrinkled mother, then a grandmother and a great grandmother, with the sea embedded in her soul. She lives in a fishermen's village with white and diminutive houses perched at the edge of a cliff in Peniche, an old fishermen's town, at a neighbourhood known as "Windows of the Sea". She now tells the story of her life. She repeats ancient and life-giving gestures, illuminating childhood dreams. The camera follows those steps, moves backwards, and then it lurches forward suggesting a disquieting outcome of situations of these days, like those of the 11th September of that same year. The boys who live around her tell the same story in a different way. To make that possible all it takes is a flick-knife, a handsaw, a broom stick, some bamboo canes, several floaters from the sardine nets, a few magic tricks. Seduced by the protagonist, the grandson and the great grandson, together with a couple of friends, they all share an exiting adventure. The play. The deep blue of the sea. The unpredictable Atlantic, swaying under the splendour of the mists. Time. -- (c) Official Site
