After the first difficult moments, joy returns to the island, at its natural place amongst the inhabitants. There’s a strong belief in new goals and there’s a hope of overcoming, even if you have to relay on magic to that dream. This is how we find Fernando making “tricks” to delight three Spanish young ladies, vacationing in the island.

José and Inês are the living testimony of the strength that the unity can bring. At 84 and 81 years old, they continuously overcome together all the obstacles life brings to them.

José still takes gentle care of his land and working the wood at his workshop. Inês is an artisan and one of the few who still knows the secrets for the making of the traditional wool caps. They are the inspiration, of both continuity and unity, we celebrate. It’s them who hold the power to make us believe there is always something very good in the stories we live, even when we see no happy endings… It just means you’re not there yet.

Nothing is achieved without effort.
It’s six o’clock in the morning and Sérgio is already walking in the dark and fog covered pastures of Corvo cliffs. Tirelessly,  everyday, he repeats gestures and paths known to no one but him.

Fulfilling the stops demanded by his work, Sérgio is committed to what makes him travel the dawn; a goal that, he knows, will be fulfilled. If not now, if not at this moment, then the thing is keep working, because nothing is achieved without effort.
