Lisbon Stories

A video about living at a place and imagining a different one, about making appointments and missing each other, about leaving and staying.


Man: "Hey"
Woman: "Hi!"
Man: "Haven't seen you for ages!"
Woman: "Maybe you've been looking the wrong way?"
Man: "Hey, I've got something cooking."
Woman: "Tough luck."
Woman: "I'm leaving for Helsinki tomorrow."
Man: "Let's just find a place to sit down."
Woman: "Sorry not now. You see, I have a lot to do today. Maybe tonight?"
Man: "See you at 8 pm then, by the temple of Vasco da Gama."
