"Throughout the 1960's and 70's most inhabitants of Mega Fundeira, a small Portuguese village, emigrated. But many returned to "die at home". Others were not able to do so. It was the case of my parents, who passed away prior to fulfilling their life project. I travel to this village and visit the places where they were born, lived and got married."
