We're on Air

Diogo Costa Amarante

Fátima says she no longer has feelings, but finds herself dreaming about her new policeman neighbor. Her son Vítor secretly wears that policeman's uniform, hoping it might bring pleasure to a boy he met online. Grandma Júlia wants to escape her retirement home and run away from her husband, but she doesn’t know where to go. A spiral of insomnia and nocturnal illusions leads to misunderstandings and impossible relationships, all seeking a little air.
