On a warm August afternoon, a family gathered around the table remembers Uncle Botão: the Portuguese colonial war, emigration to France where he lived and worked for thirty years as a scavenger. The memories of each member of the family are intertwined to retrace the story of a man who lived a hard life without losing humor and imagination: as when returning to Belmonte in a van full of garbage, the latter turned out to be a treasure.
