It is a dramatization of some of the correspondence exchanged between Fernando Pessoa and Ofélia Queiroz. Other texts are added to that correspondence, by Fernando Pessoa and also by the director himself. It is taken as a dramaturgical assumption that Mr. Fernando knows what he is doing while the girl Ofélia is entangled in the inconsequential idyll of an unrequited passion.
In Senhor Fernando there is a rationality with experiential objectives that aim to serve his obsessive and obstinate poetic production, while in Miss Ofélia there is an unreflected participation as a design of destiny. In it, existence is fulfilled with a sense of tragic becoming; there is an incident that gives an unexpected density to his routine and ordinary life.
