Paulo Rocha films the desolated landscapes of a Lisbon in construction, between two apparently opposed sets: a urban one, the new neighbourhoods in Avenidas Novas, where both of the protagonists work, and where Júlio lives with his uncle, a rural place that is menaced by the city growth. Rocha also sets up a dichotomy between a modern Lisbon by day, where most of the action takes place; and an ancient Lisbon by night, where some freedom is allowed.
