Légua is a small village perched on the edge of a road that connects the two closest towns. The village is home to Celina, who runs by herself the house known as Casa da Botica, an 18th century property seldom visited by its owners. Her husband, Fernando, has returned to France, as an immigrant, where he works in construction. Her children, Tânia and Tiago, have left home. The only one living with her is Conceição, an old friend who is now sick. Between the constant caring and what is left of the village, distance settles into the family.
