A nurse takes care of a patient in her house. Maria do Céu has been a nurse for more than forty years, working at an old hospital in Lisbon. She was sixteen, when she arrived in Lisbon, coming from a small village in Alentejo. At the hospital, she reads the file of an old patient who was also her friend. The file is then closed. Maria do Céu returns to her village, where she sings at the people’s house choir.
