Pilar spends her first years of retirement trying to straighten up the world and dealing with other people's guilt, an increasingly frustrating task these days. She takes part in peace vigils, collaborates with Catholic charities, wants to host young Polish girls coming to Lisbon on a Taizé ecumenical meeting and constantly hangs up and takes down an ugly painting made by a friend so as not to offend his feelings should it not be in view when he comes to visit. She is mostly troubled by her neighbor, Aurora, a temperamental and eccentric octogenarian who escapes to the casino whenever she has money. She talks constantly about a daughter who seems not to want to see her, has hangovers from anti-depressants and suspects her Cape-Verdean maid, Santa, is practicing voodoo against her. Before dying, Aurora will make a mysterious request: She wants to meet a man, Gian Luca Ventura, and Pilar and Santa join forces to grant her wish.
