Synopsis: With the demolition of Quinta da Vitória neighborhood (Lisbon. Portugal), our film aims to create a living archive of the history and memory of its inhabitants, as well as to mobilize an intervention in their representation in the city. The film is focused on the daily life of an older couple descendant of an Indian family, who emigrated from Mozambique, a former colony of Portugal, to Lisbon in the 1970s. The husband and wife both work out of their home in the neighborhood. As tailors, they both have a close relationship with the other inhabitants, and they are especially integrated into the Hindu community that lives in this neighborhood.
