Young and handsome Sergio (Ricardo Meneses) works the night shift as a trash collector in Lisbon. He is uninterested in his pretty female co-worker Fatima, who displays an avid interest in him, so instead Sergio roams the city. Eventually Sergio becomes fascinated with a sleek motorcycle and its arrogant owner - a young man totally indifferent to Sergio. Sergio's surfacing desires unleash his darkest impulses, sending him down a dangerous path of violence, depravity, and degradation.
The film premiered at the 2000 Venice International Film Festival. It won the prize for best feature film in the New York Lesbian & Gay Film Festival and the Entrevues Film Festival. Ricardo Meneses was nominated for the 2001 Portuguese Golden Globe award for best leading actor.
