This is the story of a nine year old girl who crosses the city of Lisbon searching for the only person that can help her: the Portuguese Prime Minister Pedro Passos Coelho. In the strange world called Lisbon we encounter economic crisis, the heroic adventure of a teddy bear with suicidal tendencies named Judy Garland , an attempted bank robbery, the Discovery Channel, paedophiles and Anton Chekov. Immersed in the obscurity of one young woman's optimism and imagination we find a strong exploration of the boundaries between adult and child, father and daughter.
