An old inn, located in central Porto, hosted people with few possessions for many years: prostitutes and people passing by made of that place their home for long or short time. At the end of 2013, the landlady, who sub rented the rooms, handed out the key to the owner of the house. In the 14 rooms, which make up the building, almost everything was left behind, like unmade beds and all kinds of objects such as toys, posters, chairs and ladders, clothes and shoes in closets. A diary written by a child and found onsite brings us to the kind of atmosphere - dark and violent - that would be lived in the inn. It left mainly memories that we project in time and space, echoes and sounds, images of emptiness and abandonment of a space that is no longer inhabited.
