Synopsis

MELBOURNE PREMIERE

The mysterious and handsome poet Al Berto arrives at the sleepy fishing village of Sines in Portugal at the height of the decedent disco era of the 1970’s. Suffice to say, Sines hasn’t caught up but Al Berto is about to change all that.
Very quickly he sets up house in a ramshackle mansion with a crew of young bohemians and misfits, while falling for the aspiring writer João. But changing the world comes with a cost and Al Berto and his merry crew of outcasts soon find themselves clashing with the conservative elements of the town.
Brimming with energy, passion and a revolutionary spirit (not to mention disco), Al Berto is a welcome sensual overload and a rallying call to arms.
