A grieving young widow (Amelia Coroa) discovers that her eight-year-old son (Ludovic Videira) has joined a gang of young thieves. Rather than lose him to reform school, she flees their backwater town with him and another child in tow. What seems at first like a bucolic journey through the countryside becomes an inescapable nightmare, and the final act unfolds almost exclusively after dark, reflecting writer-director Joaquim Sapinho's sense of human depravity. The resolution is heartbreakingly tragic, though the modest narrative ultimately buckles under its own existential weight. In Portuguese with subtitles. 84 min.
