Rampant debt and a serious midlife crisis send philosopher Edmund Burke on an expedition through the French Alps. He brings along a servant from his brother’s plantation in the West Indies, a young indigenous woman named Awak. Together they set out to discover the sublime in this 18th-century road movie. Ill-equipped for outdoor life, Burke whines the days away while Awak carries their supplies and makes sure his face is perpetually powdered.

In Lisbon, from the height of the Torel viewpoint, the city expands as far as the eye can see, becoming a perfect place to think and remember. Through encounters with people who inhabit the viewpoint in different ways, Daniela reflects on living in a new city by taking a journey into her family memories. She imagines her mother and grandmother when they were her age and thinks about the first places they lived.
