CÃES QUE LADRAM AOS PÁSSAROS

Portugal

Synopsis

School is over and there's a bustle in the air. In Porto, tourists fill up the streets and cafés. The old and decadent are now highlights of the city’s gentrification. Vicente moves around town on his bike, watching the urban landscape modify day by day. The town is no longer the same, the world is changing and so is he. Among his family and friends, Vicente lives with anticipation the first days of summer and the beginning of a new life.
