In June, 2008, Pedro disappeared without a trace, after having lived with Stefan Libiot for thirteen years. The search for his whereabouts starts, in vain. In 2013, Stefan turns fifty and starts a journal in the shape of a film. In it, Portugal, as shot by him, exposes its recurring places: Pessoa, the Fado, crisis. But it also reveals its hidden features: streets that inexorably lead to the sea, missing inhabitants, the Peniche Fort and a series of people who, faced by their memories, tell their stories and what they know about Pedro. Was it suicide? Is he really alive and hiding in some unknown place? Does he exist? The search Stefan carries out (with his Pasolini-like pensive profile) examines the memory of a country. Sometimes with a frantic pace, that which is needed in order to go after the truth, and others with a paused, contemplative tone, required by every investigation in order to analyze the clues and finding answers.
