1h 51min | Drama | 11 April 1999 (Portugal)
A woman takes her young son, leaves her husband and moves in with her lover. The boy, desperate to get his parents back together, becomes convinced that if only he can get his father’s stolen motorcycle back everything will be fine again, so he sets out to get enough money to buy his father a new one.
This movie is strange, because it mixes three stories all in one. The story of the city of Oporto, in Portugal, and its everyday life. The story of a kid, named Jaime, 13 years old, that lives with his mother and her lover, after she left his father. Jaime is trying everything to get them together again, and he thinks that all the situation was caused because someone has stolen his father’s motorcycle, and he lost his job. So, the kid starts working to get the money to buy a new motorcycle. This is the reality, shown like it happens everyday. A great movie in all ways!
