Jake and Mati are two outsiders in the northerly Portuguese city of Porto who once experienced a brief but intimate connection. He's an American loner exiled from his family; she’s a French student abroad with her professor lover. One day they see each other from a distance at an archeological site and then again at a train station and a café, where Jake works up the courage to speak to Mati for the first time, and they embark on a night of carefree intimacy. This experience is looked at years later using fragments from Mati and Jake's lives apart, both of them still haunted by the powerful moments they shared. *Screening on 35mm!
