Fernando Pessoa, one of the greatest writers of the 20th century, was always unknown and observant on the margins of society during his lifetime. These observations, most of which are summarized in his fragmentary work „The Book of Restlessness“, describe an egoistic and thoughtless society that has lost faith in every god.Like a forgotten treasure, Pessoa‘s dream-like spider‘s web of fragments, stored in an old wooden chest, was only published long after his death, making him posthu-mously Portugal‘s most famous writer.Today, the capital enjoys increasing popularity as an inter-national travel destination. Masses of people crowd the city by the Tejo every day, passing numerous dilapidated and empty houses that are no longer renovated and inhabited due to a legal rent brake.The film leads the viewer through these abandoned land- scapes and leaves room for the effect of emptiness in the metropolis of Lisbon with the long forgotten lines of Pessoa.
