Skin River (Terceiro Turno)


In a small village in the north of Portugal, Agostinho endures the imprisonment of his routine. Then, one day, he suffers a strange seizure leaving the factory where he works the night shift. Unable to explain what happened, Agostinho wanders through his routine, lost and desolated. He eats in the kitchen with his parents, meets his girlfriend, hangs out with friends, and races in his car, aware of the impossibility of change.
