Tertuliano Máximo Afonso is a divorced, depressed history teacher
To lift his spirits, he rents a certain video
Tertuliano watches the film, unimpressed
But during the night, he goes back into the living room to find that the VCR is replaying the video
He watches in astonishment as a man who looks exactly like him-or, more specifically, exactly like he did five years before appears on the screen
Against his better judgment, Tertuliano decides to pursue his double
