Sentimental Stories

A girl waits for her boyfriend, a worker in the harbour. In the locker room a worker confides in his colleague about his unhappy marriage. But there's more to their relationship than advice giving. At the end of his shift a young man takes a shower in the washroom of the port and hurries to meet his girlfriend in the cantine. It's his last day on the job. One moment they seem hopeful and in love, the next she’s being ghosted. Baffled, she goes looking for him in the port. Violetta, the owner of the cantine is a hard worker nostalgic of a life she never had. She employs her niece, a radical pacifist whose life strategy is to lay low. Intersecting, their stories create a parallax view of heartbreak and desire, disappointment and hope.
