This is an uncooked slice of history. It is the story of what happened in Portugal between April 25, 1974 and November 25, 1975 - as seen and felt by a deeply committed participant. It depicts the hopes, the tremendous enthusiasm, the boundless energy, the total commitment, the released power, even the revolutionary incence of thousands of ordinary people taking a hand in the remoulding of their lives. And It does so against the background of an ecomic and social reality which placed limits on what could be done. This tension dominates the whole narrative.
