The novel, written by architect Oscar Niemeyer is set in the era of a fierce military dictatorship, and tells the story of a university professor and his girlfriend who are involved in an episode of political struggle, after taking refuge in a small village by the sea and joining a group of fishermen and simple people who lived there.  Through the plot, Niemeyer leads the reader to reflect on human problems ever present in society. After the publication of his memoir, The Curves of Time, Oscar Niemeyer turns his creative genius to literary fiction, where his maturity as a writer finds his greatest moment. The result is a simple tale, almost a fable, of remarkable beauty and grandeur.
