Lorenzo is 30 years old, Italian mother and Portuguese father, has never lived in Portugal and only superficially knows the history of his country's recent past. In a Europe shaken by the economic and political crisis, the revolt winds seem to have been blown back on the land of Lusitana. This pushes him to embark on a journey in search of the revolution that he was not alive for, to understand why that experience is still alive and well. Meeting with the protagonists of yesterday and today, he will first reconstruct the tale of the powerful as short parable that between April 1974 and November 1975 brought to the Portuguese the joy of freedom and the promise of a different and better society. The inability to fulfill that promise has contributed to the foundation of the current crisis, in which the same partial victories of that revolution are put into question.
