"I was born beneath this water. I was 10 years old when it all happened. Some things I remember well, others are blurred and confused..." During six years we followed the daily life of this village, condemned to disappear beneath the waters of the Alqueva dam. Once the water arrived we followed its inhabitants to the new village: a ghostly replica of the flooded one.
