On Christmas Eve, two women chat on a boat, as it glides over the waters of the dark, cold pond. Life and death travel with them in the same boat, gliding over the same waters. An unexpected event will mark the end of this crossing.
The short film The Ferry (A Barca) is an adaptation of the short story “Natal na Barca” (Christmas on the ferry, 1958), by Brazilian writer Lygia Fagundes Telles, who received the Camões Prize (the largest literary prize for Portuguese-speaking authors) in 2005.
This tale is present in her book of short stories entitled Before the Green Ball (Antes do Baile Verde) (1970).
