Reperage à praia do Magoito

Synopsis:

Upon arriving home, Luís, a 55-year-old banker, is greeted by a crowd of people who have been aggrieved by his bank, who demonstrate against him. As the car passes through the crowd, protesters throw paint and eggs at the car, banging on the windows and shouting against Luís.
At dinner, his children, Martim and Benedita try to question him about the case and the protests taking place outside his house. Alexandra, mother of the children and wife of Luís, tries to make the children end the conversation and tries to change the subject, in vain.
After dinner, while the children sleep, Alexandra and Luís discuss the details of the case. Luís tries to assure Alexandra that they will find a solution. However, Alexandra makes the decision to separate from Luís, in order to protect her children and herself.
With this, Luís leaves the house, followed by his dog, Baco, but not noticing the animal's presence. When he reaches a cliff, Luís prepares to throw himself. When you are about to do so, your dog's barking diverts your attention. First, Luís tries to chase the dog away, but ends up being convinced by the animal's barking, following it into the middle of the woods.
