The film covers the story of the protagonist in one of the most troubled periods in Portuguese history - the first half of the 19th century. The civil war between absolutists and liberals and the subsequent struggles explain Matos Lobo's troubled journey. The family, conservative and miguelist, suffers the consequences of the defeat. Conflicts with his father, seminary and his exaggerated romantic temperament shape his psyche. But it is the inconclusive passion for the beautiful Adelaide that triggers the tragedy, even more when she exhibits a liberal behavior, contrary to Portuguese customs. The hypothesis that Matos Lobo is innocent will remain until the end.
