A typical lunch goes wrong when Ana Luísa begins to remember peculiar episodes that occurred during her childhood and adolescence. Between carrot soups, walks by the sea, mother's advice, engagements and weddings, Ana Luísa thinks of everything that could have changed about her past. However, these memories will have unpredictable side effects. A family comedy that portrays Portugal from the 70s to the present day. And thinking about it, there are things that don't really have to change, because in the end we all know that... Mum knows best!
