In the heart of Lisbon, a neighbourhood on the margins of the Tejo, a few streets between the train tracks and the River. The elderly live out their final moments, while luxury buildings are being built, thereby laying down a new social layer in this neighbourhood which has been practically abandoned. My encounters took place at a café there on the corner, and mainly with the elderly ladies from the neighbourhood. They tell me of the neighbourhood, its present, its past, through their own lives.
