When the director was born, her father had gone to war in Guinea-Bissau, a former Portuguese colony, or province, as dictator Salazar used to say. When her father returned from the war, he brought two things with him: a gun and a monkey. The monkey died, but the gun is still in her home in Portugal. She has always wondered why her silent father has a gun.
