Synopsis Summer in a mountainous region of Portugal. The heat intensifies in August, the month in which village celebrations multiply: fireworks, open-air dances, orchestras, traditions and foreign visitors. As if in a documentary, Miguel Gomes’ camera records the summertime events of the area, including the fortunes and misfortunes of his own crew shooting a film that has as yet not been properly defined. This continues until he sets his fictional eyes on the story of Tania, an adolescent singing in one of the groups referred to, and on her close relationship with her father after her mother disappeared. When her cousin Helder arrives on holidays and joins the group, the initial ups and downs between him and Tania culminate into a melodramatic story, an unexpected love triangle.
