When Simon, a young gay English teacher, goes to work in southern Portugal, he doesn’t expect to find a country in the aftermath of a peaceful revolution, nor to have an affair with Elaine, a female colleague. As both the revolution and the love affair turn sour, Simon learns the truth of the words of his friend, Luis: that revolution is an experiment you make with your own body.
