With calm and clear imagery, Cabo depicts the ambivalent world of the young Cape Verdean Arthur, an ambitious medical student with a great Dutch girlfriend. When a mysteriously smiling African demands a solution to a sensitive problem, Arthur is forced to confront a part of his life he would rather forget.
