Can you get a second chance in a relationship once it has gone wrong? Fabian thinks you can. He hopes you can. When a woman who looks strikingly like his former girlfriend Doro dies on his operating table, the young doctor decides to do everything he can to repair what had been broken. He travels after his ex-girlfriend to Lisbon, where she has accepted a job at an architect’s office. He finds a job, starts taking Portuguese lessons, sets himself up in an apartment and courts her. After some hesitation, Doro succumbs and love blossoms again. But Fabian soon reverts to his old pattern of suspicion, paranoia and accusation.
Fado is a study in pathological jealousy, obsessive dependence and poisoned love. The urge to possess slowly but surely suffocates any form of affection and inevitably turns into blind aggression. The consequences are severe.
