People change their residence, new churches are built, new houses, new streets, but here everything changed at the same time, trying to look as if nothing changed." For six years we shot many hours of footage of this village, condemned to disappear beneath the waters of the Alqueva dam. From this material and the essays written by the village children who remember what they felt during all the changing development, this documentary tell us, in flash-back, the strange story of Luz.
