A Viagem (The Trip) tells the story of António, an elderly retired man from Lisbon, who spends his days drinking at the bar while his wife passes the time by watching mindless TV shows at home. Their life has become a mundane routine devoid of passion.

But one day, António suffers an unexpected accident which allows him to look at life in a new light. He realizes he is still in love with his wife and therefore decides to use all of their savings and rent a convertible to go on an idyllic holiday.

But things don’t quite turn out as António expected… and the couple gets lost. Alone, in the middle of nowhere, they must stick together in order to survive.
