Gebo is an elderly accountant who lives with his wife Doroteia and his daughter-in-law Sofia. Despite his advanced age and increasing fatigue, he continues to work to provide for his family. Doroteia is concerned for her son João, who has been missing for some time. Gebo and Sofia have some idea of João’s whereabouts, having spotted him begging and living in the streets. But Gebo, who doesn’t want to destroy Doroteia’s idealized version of her son, conceals the truth from her. When João returns to the family home, however, this falsehood proves to have disastrous consequences, as the prodigal son is unable to resist the temptation of a bag of money entrusted to Gebo’s keeping.
