The Wise Man
PEDRO HOMEM is a man who has just come back to Montemor, the town where he was born and spent most of his life after having disappeared without a trace and been mysteriously away for 20 years. He has left behind a SOFIA, a daughter, and an old and deep love for CARMEN, something that he once decided to bury in the deepest recesses of his heart.
The reasons for Pedro’s disappearance have always been the object of speculation, since he was very popular in his native town and even known for being able to foresee the future. His predictions about other people’s lives were always right and all would try and get a word from him about it whenever they could find him. But the gift of being able to foresee the future can also be more of a curse than a blessing, since Pedro had 2 tragic premonitions: he sensed that his destiny was inextricably linked to that of his daughter in a way that will cause them to die simultaneously and also had a vision of Carmen in a coffin, wearing a bridal dress and an engagement ring that he felt would have been by him - so he becomes sure that if they stick together she will die.
Pedro, then, searches for a god or person who can help him and deliver him from the gift that endangers the lives of those he loves most.
