After shipwrecking, Carlos together with his colleagues, is dragged to coast. In a fight for his already lost life, Carlos tries to seek salvation by accepting death and leaving his family behind.

Carlos is a 44-year-old fisherman married to Maria and father to Pedro and Tomás. In a week of bad weather off the Portuguese coast, the vessels due to the bad weather were retained days in the ports without possibility to leave. That night with orders from the commander of the vessel, Carlos and the rest his crew are forced to accept the storm to recover the income they lost the previous week.

In that night, the worst happened and the vessel ends up wrecked after a radio call for help. The bodies, along with the wreckage of the vessel, were dragged to shore where Carlos appears to be the only one with signs of life. He try to find help from the people who approach the place where the corpses are but in vain. Throughout this narrative we see the last moment in the family that Carlos had before leaving. A tense atmosphere on the part of Carlos and Maria for fearing the worst. This climate contrasts with the innocence of Pedro and Tomás who were unaware of the risks his father would take that night.

We are students of Cinema of the Universidade Lusófona in Lisbon, and we are currently producing the Short Film "SALTO". We believe that Cinema has the power to tell stories and to count this, we have as main objective to raise allies to this project.

The Short Film "SALTO" is a final year project of the Degree in Cinema, which at the moment is in the pre-production stage so that in May the shooting will take place. For this, we intend with this campaign raise some financial aid, for the project to be carried out.
