Km 224

A film by António-Pedro Vasconcelos

Starring José Fidalgo, Ana Varela, Gonçalo Menino, Sebastião Matias

Mário and Cláudia are going through a contentious divorce process, marked by a dispute for the custody of their two children (5-year-old Rodrigo and 7-year-old Mateus). Mário isn’t a traditional father and sees joy as the most important component in education. But, due to negligence or bad luck, he subjects his children to unconventional situations. On the other hand, Cláudia is ambitious and focused on her job. The children alternate between living with each of their progenitors. This arrangement is called into question when Mário is prevented from being with his children and Cláudia accepts a job in another country. With the wisdom of children, Francisco and Mateus will make their parents reevaluate their deepest certainties and put their grudges in perspective.
