While It Lasts



Rodrigo believes in men; Ciça talks to plants. He needs advice; she needs peace and quiet. They share the same roof, but not the same bed. The estranged couple, who still lives together, and their teenage son lead what by all appearances seems to be a conventional family life, until the arrival of an unexpected guest: Leila, Rodrigo’s lover, whose appearance shakes everyone’s life down to its core, prompting the family to rediscover itself and its interrelationships.
