In a housing estate in Lisbon, a young gypsy lives a forbidden love.

Throughout life, it is our options, choices and environments to which we are exposed that define us. Decision-making is something that is not born with us but develops over time and is based on all our experiences, on what we were and what we are, making us different from those around us.

Nowadays there is still a lot of difficulty for people to express themselves in a society accustomed to judgments towards those who do not follow standardized norms.

We want to show the difficulty in taking a position different from the ideals of the world we live in and the strength and courage it takes to do so. Our goal with this series is that everyone can understand the problem, regardless of their culture, and that they become aware of this cause.


In a neighborhood in Lisbon where people from different communities live, everyone knows each other and lives together in full communion. Isaías is a 24-year-old gypsy young man, who lives in the neighborhood with his family, who he is very close to and has a great relationship with, he will have his marriage to Tatiana in a few weeks. Isaías was always an exemplary young man and always respected the community a lot, always having his family as a mirror, but everything changed when he began to develop a secret relationship with Samuel. Samuel, a 22-year-old Caucasian young man from the neighborhood, lives with his family but does not have a good relationship with them, he has the desire to leave the neighborhood because he feels that he will never be free there to express his true feelings for Isaías.
The story we want to tell will be the direction this relationship will take, and how difficult it will be for Isaías to live up to the rules of his community.
