A temperamental old woman, her Cape Verdean maid and a neighbor devoted to social causes live on the same apartment building in Lisbon. When the old lady dies, the other two learn of an episode from her past: a tale of love and crime set in an Africa straight from the world of adventure films.
Tabu is a story told in two acts. The first is a dryly absurd comedy about old age, and the second, a flashback to youth, doubles as a daring “silent” film of lush, otherworldly romance. Together, they form a playful, bewitching, and unclassifiable tale of memory and the ache of mortality.
