Storyline



©
In the late summer of 1980, 16-year-old Alda and her 17-yearold sister Maria flee to the Portuguese capital Lisbon to escape the civil war in Angola. Destitute and left to fend for themselves, the two sisters wait in despair for their mother who has promised to follow them to Europe. But in the end they have to learn to cope alone in a world where everything is foreign to them. Confronted daily with racism and with shocking news from their home country, the two young women develop impressive energies to stand their ground. Pocas Pascoal directed her feature film debut with unsentimental sensitivity while drawing on her own experience. In the 1980s, her mother sent her with her sister to Portugal because of the war in Angola – like so many thousands of other young refugees of war.
