Deus Providenciará (God Will Provide) – 15′
Director: Luís Porto

But an accident might be the solution. She just needs to remain still. No one would blame her for an accident, right? Maria is alone.�Maria finds her solace and battles solitude, but her refuge is now her calvary.
What will prevail: the fear of being ostracized and judged by society or the love of God?
