Guilherme has been looking after his grandfather for more time than he remembers. When his health worsens, he'll have to find solutions as soon as possible.

"The Monsters Only Come Out at Night" is a short film, inserted in the cinematographic genre of drama, portraying the relation of Guilherme with his grandfather Jorge, whose health is fragile.

The film follows the story of a young unemployed adult and his grandfather, exploring the close relationship between them. While trying to get a job, Guilherme will need the help of Inês, his childhood friend and love interest, in taking care of Jorge.  Jorge's health however becomes incredibly fragile and without other alternatives, the young man is put between the sword and the wall when having to contact a dangerous individual, who he thought to be part of his past.
