TWO DRIFTERS

by João Pedro Rodrigues

synopsis

Odete works in a hypermarket in Lisbon. She dreams of having a child with her boyfriend, Alberto, who works in the same hypermarket as a night watchman. But when Odete tells him about her desire for a child, Alberto runs away. Left alone, Odete becomes obsessed with her dream.
Two youths, Pedro and Rui, are kissing outside a bar. They have been together for a year now and exchange engagement rings and oaths of love. Pedro goes home by car and Rui returns to the bar where he works at night. A few streets away, and a few minutes later, Pedro has a car accident. He dies in the arms of Rui, who comes running to help him.
Rui, forlorn and hopeless, loses the desire to live. But the love between Pedro and Rui is eternal.
Strangely, their destiny will meet that of Odete, who is summoned by Pedro’s ghost.
