The second movie in March of the Cineclube brings back a real 35mm film, something we could not experience for a long time.

The story of the itinerary of a man and a woman who come from Trás-os-Montes and who, during the trip, face “legends and rocks, provinces and obstacles”. The movie is in Portuguese.
