Two boys and a girl keep getting in and out from a “special house”, one of the many Lisbon institutes accommodating minors from all over Portugal. The kids refuse the little they are offered: a shelter, some food, the operators’ understanding and solidarity. If inevitable, their revolt is doomed to self-destruction, devoid as it is of a way out and of perspectives of sort. They are “mutants”, individuals that don’t accept the place they have been assigned to.
