World Premiere

Aleixo, a neighbourhood in Porto, is inhabited by low-income communities and workers and is known as a drug centre. Sitting in one of the most beautiful hills overlooking the river, the neighbourhood became a target of both political and economical powers, and its demolition became unavoidable.

This film portrays a community on the verge of being dispersed, ripped from their houses and sense of belonging. It mourns a way of life, and class identity, while depicting the inhabitants’ dignity and force to carry on.
