The Box- Cinema Cycle Portas Abertas

On a sloping street in the popular neighborhood of Alfama, a blind man lost his wooden box where he keeps the charity money. What he keeps in that black-wood box, painted with the mysterious initials ABLE, one can say that it is all that he can live from. The blind man’s daughter, always distracted by housework, falls into a pile of clothes that she washes for her clients. Her husband, unemployed like the most of his friends, lives off the old man's charity box and his wife's work. When the box disappears, the subject becomes a violent conflict, almost a tragedy. But every cloud has a silver lining.
