In a lost island in the middle of the Atlantic ocean, a scientific discovery brings into question everything we know about the evolution of species.
Mysteries of the Wild and its presenter guide us, in this short documentary on animal life, through the habits of a Monoculis Ori couple, which may be the most curious animal species ever.
A homeless teenager is domesticated by an eccentric mother and daughter, in order to become a potential companion for the girl. He is subjected to trials and proves. As days go by, new impulses will arrise from either side and control will be lost over instinc and logic - until the ultimate surrender. Such is the sentimental education of monsters: we are who we are, having secretly decided on who we would like to be.
Raymond Vachs, 60, parisian, came to Portugal with 25th April, fell in love and stayed in Lisbon, where he lives ever since. During the marriage of his 21 year daughter, Catherine, to Damiao, a rich and corrupt man of his own age, Raymond feels martyred for keeping and consenting the marriage, believing that financial security was preferable to uncertainty in a "democratically elected" authoritarian capitalist regime. During a night of humiliation, Raymond lives an inner revolt and a kaleidoscopic journey in a country that is about to collapse. It is also the collapse of his convictions.
