On the weekend of his 15th birthday, Pedro goes on a trip but he doesn’t return home. His father, Dr. Theo Gadelha, 35, sets out to find him. His son’s sudden and unexplainable disappearance is one of the events that further destroys Theo’s life. His fifteen-year marriage to Branca, herself a doctor, was also coming to an end. Theo heads out in pursuit of his son and winds up finding his own father, whom he hasn’t seen in years. Face to face with him, he sees himself in his father’s eyes, finds his son and goes back to the woman he has never really stopped loving.
