Ventura, a Cape Verdean labourer living in the outskirts of Lisbon, is suddenly abandoned by his wife Clotilde. Ventura feels lost between the dilapidated old quarter where he spent the last thirty-four years of his life, and the new lodgings in a recently built low-cost housing complex. All the young poor souls he meets seem to become his own children.
