O Cágado (The Tortoise)

Synopsis

There was once a man quite sure of himself. Once day he would have a stroll near his town. On one such occasion, he saw something he had never seen before: a tortoise. He examined it thoroughly, noticing its every detail; soon he ran home to tell the family. But would anyone believe him?...
