Synopsis

Fernando Pessoa, established a gigantic parallel universe creating a series of heteronyms to survive his loneliness of genius. José Saramago, returned the heteronymous Ricardo Reis to Portugal, after 16 years of exile in Brazil. 1936 is the year of all dangers, Mussolini’s fascism, Hitler’s Nazism, the terrible Spanish civil war and Salazar’s Estado Novo in Portugal. Fernando Pessoa, the creator, meets Ricardo Reis, the creature. Two women, Lídia and Marcenda, are Ricardo Reis’ carnal and impossible passions.
