Four writers. 

Three travelling in Portugal. 

One staying behind to care for his ailing mother. 

One long-distance writing affair. 

The passing of the mother together with memories of other losses and absences come together in Lost Bodies, a meditation on the transience of time and love and an invitation to get away—physically or spiritually—from worldly concerns to explore a different history, a different culture, a different light, laced with dreamy scents and the faint calls of fado.
