The Invisible Life

Vítor Gonçalves

Drama / 73min / 2013





There is a long night when Hugo, a civil servant, is sitting on the stairs of the ministry where he works. He can't face going home.

The images of the mysterious 8 mm films he found in Antonio's house after he passed away keep coming back to his mind.

Hugo remembers the day when António, his superior at the ministry, told him that he was going to die.

Indirectly Antonio seemed to want to tell him something about Hugo himself.

Hugo's desire to understand what it was that remained unsaid between the two of them, triggers other memories from the past.

Hugo unexpectedly thinks back on the last time he saw the woman he loved, Adriana, and relives once more what he feels has been his unlived life.
