Synopsis: “A hotel on the north coast of Portugal welcomes its guests for a weekend. A man lives torn between the attention to be given to his wife and the space occupied by his mother in their midst. One mother promotes her daughter’s marriage to facilitate her love affair with her son-in-law. Another mother lives through her daughter, preventing her from making her own decisions. Three family nuclei at the end of a cycle of acceptance”. For people over 14.
