At 63 years old and almost retired, Joaquim is forced to follow job centre rules so he can collect unemployment benefits : he must go from company to company asking for stamps to attest that he is looking for work. In these trips he reminisces about his life as an immigrant to the U.S., where he worked as a cab driver in New York and witnessed numerous Wall Street crashes.
The film is selected for the One+One award.
