Doclisboa 2010 - CGD Award for First Documentary of the Portuguese Competition

Portrait of a Portuguese bar whose boundary is a road in a little village. Through a succession of everyday scenes, a community appears, which is unified by the fact that there they feel “at home”. Its protagonists eat, drink, discuss, watch tv... they all spend time there, waiting for something.
