Independência De Espírito (Independent Mind)

Synopsis

Clélia is a woman who is comfortable with her solitude. With it, she fills her Lisbon house, patio and garden. She attends to her plants and one day, almost without noticing, she begins talking to them... What am I doing? Now I’m talking to flowers?! Questions Clélia. The reply comes from her neighbour who talks to her pots and pans...
