West Point is the most Western point of the continent of Europe in Portugal, the Cabo da rocha. Brother and sister look back on their childhood as they narrate in voice-over. After the violent death of their parents, they were split up and grew up in different places. Their mother turns out to have been a Portuguese political refugee and a thriller story develops (with a small role for the Flemish actor Johan Leysen).
Elegant, layered narrative essay shot in Super-8 and 16mm in which childhood, loss, love and melancholy pass by. A family drama, emigration story and detective all in one .
