Paul (Francis Frappat) is a curious writer who has an odd appointment: He is to meet the ghost of Portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa (Miguel Yeco). But Paul is early, so he begins to wander the streets of Lisbon, searching for something without having a clear idea of what he's looking for. He views and contemplates art. He experiences the city. And through it all, he retreats into a dream state, meeting characters from the past and present who might be able to help him in his quest.
