A beach of fishermen, the sea that is gradually conquering the land. The struggle of man with the sea and above all the struggle between tradition and progress. At the heart of the drama are the emotional, difficult and almost absurd relationships that unite a fisherman, Adelino, returning from the African war and two women, Julia, a woman of the sea (the old fashioned way), and Albertina, a mysterious and wild worker . Returning from overseas, Adelino finds Júlia, his old girlfriend, married to his brother. The drama appears ... Albertina, the worker, challenges you to leave, to Change of Life.
