Summary:
Spanning three decades in the 19th century and plunging into a whirlwind of adventures, coincidences, revelations, vengeance, betrayals and love affairs, wrapped in a rhapsodic voyage that takes us to Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, and as far as Brazil. Evoking the complex intertwined narratives of Charles Dickens, the film's central character is Joao, the illegitimate child of an ill-fated romance between two members of the aristocracy who were forbidden to marry, and follows Joao's quest to discover the truth of his parentage.
