A ROOF IN COMMON

Documentary | Taiwan, Portugal

SYNOPSIS

Inacio spent all his life in Moitinhas (Little Hill) and was once the magic doctor for the village. However, even his magic couldn’t save his wife and all the villagers from senility and death. At his age of 87, the village has become so empty. Many of the villagers died from solitude. To survive, to resist this melancholy, Inacio joins his loving neighbour, Francisca’s life. They share the same roof after they both lost their life partner.

Now, at the last season of their life, the new challenge of sharing life — and affections, with one another has just begun.
