In a small village in the north of Portugal, Agostinho endures the imprisonment of his routine. One day, he suffers a strange seizure leaving the factory where he works at the night shift. Unable to explain the reason for his condition, he returns home, to his girlfriend, to his friends. Subduing his dreams and concerns, Agostinho awaits for the night to come and, with it, another shift.
