Catavento (Wind Vane)

Synopsis

It's summer in Lisbon and Nicolau is an undecided boy. Among his doubts about the university course to follow and what kind of girl to choose for his girlfriend, Nicolau spends his days trying to figure out who he wants to be when he is older. The problem is that, about to finish secondary school exams, he’s already old, without having things clearer. From indecision to indecision, Nicolau navigates in sight, with the only compass for his possible choices being the girls he falls in love with and with whom he imagines as many possible futures.
