Os Olhos Do Farol

On a rocky island exposed to the elements, a lighthouse keeper lives alone with his daughter. From the top of his tower, the father keeps vigil to the horizon line for the safety of the passing sails. With no other company, the girl develops a unique complicity with the sea, which brings her toys in the form of debris on the shore.

Following the rhythm of the waves, these objects unveil previous events and memories that the tide cannot eraseā€¦
