At the center of the action, a scenario arising from the dictatorship of the Old Regime and the post-Carnation Revolution, inhabited by a clandestine, refractory emigrant, deserter of the overseas war and anti-hero of this story.
Pedro dos Anjos, protagonist of this adventure, is a naive and in good faith man who, with his simplicity and innocence, ends up committing crimes against a dark country, illegally emigrating and deserting, involuntarily, the fulfillment of duty in a scenario of war colonial.
He forced himself to leave for France, in search of better living conditions, supposed guarantee of a more economically uninsured future for himself and his wife.
But a letter from Portugal sent him back, impelled by a feeling of "honor." It was then that his path became entangled in other illegalities and the consequences of his present and past acts.
