On his deathbed, Alfredo, king without a crown, is transported back to distant memories of his youth in the 2010s, when he dreamed of becoming a firefighter. The meeting with firefighter instructor Afonso opens a new chapter in the lives of two young men wedded to love and desire, and the fire their meeting brings will only be extinguished with the end of the human species. João Pedro Rodrigues directs a musical fantasy that clashes on the edge of orgasm with decolonial comedy, in a literal and exaggerated climactic scene that was applauded at its presentation at Cannes last May: every man for himself and dildo for all! Camp, a little queer, and very gay.

How could the corpse of the first king of Portugal, father figure D. Afonso Henriques, possibly be the source of so many superstitions and hoaxes in the course of the country's history ?
