In Ossos, after a suicidal teenage girl gives birth, she misguidedly entrusts her baby's safety to the troubled, deadbeat father. In Vanda's Room is centered around the heroin-addicted Vanda Duarte. In Colossal youth, many of the lost souls of Ossos and In Vanda's Room return. This time, Costa focuses on Ventura, an elderly immigrant from Cape Verde living in Lisbon."--Distributor.
