Senhor Francisco, a once powerful state minister and a personal friend of the Portuguese dictator Salazar, is incapacitated by a stroke, and as he spends his last days in a nursing home in Lisbon he reviews his life and his loves.

His son Joao, raised by the housekeeper, grows up to be good-hearted but totally inept, so that his ruthless in-laws easily defraud him of his fathers farm. The ministers daughter, Paula, whom he had by the cook and who was raised by a childless widow in another town, is ostracized after the Revolution for her fathers position in Salazars regime. The emotional turmoil enveloping Franciscos family finally catches up with him when the Revolution ends the forty-two years of the dictatorship, and the old regime tumbles like a house of cards.

Senhor Francisco, more paranoid than ever, remains a large but empty shadow of his once seeming omnipotence.
