At age 50, alcoholic and unemployed, Raul’s balance point is his passion for Ligia. Tired of the scarcity routine in the decaying building where she lives with Raul, on the outskirts of Recife, Ligia decides to leave him. Raul falls into the abyss of this interrupted passion. Sick, he develops, between health centers and temporary works, a sweet relationship with Cassia, a 16-year-old who also drowned into the dirty night. She has a history of sexual abuse; Raul is the first man not to do that, which makes her cling to him, but Raul resists to take the relationship seriously. After a few weeks away, he gets the news that she committed suicide. With his body and mind quite rotten by disease, Raul meets Inês, a corpse which appears in the boarding house where he lives. Raul lives through a day with this corpse and perceives it as if it were alive. He goes on a journey with Inês towards Janga beach, in Olinda, intending to throw the body into the sea.





Graduated in Film Studies, Eduardo Morotó wrote and directed five short films, amongst which are Quando Morremos à Noite (Best Short at Mostra Tiradentes) and Todos Esses Dias em Que Sou Estrangeiro (Best Short at Festival Rio). He has won more than 60 awards in both national and international film festivals. His first feature film, Death Inhabits at Night, has attended BrLab and Plataforma Lab (Brazil) and Cinéma en Développement (France). Awarded by Funcultura, the project is expected to be produced in 2017.
