A poetic and evocative vision for the future by Nobel Prize winning Portuguese novelist José Saramago, adapted and directed by rising star Tiago Rodrigues. 

One afternoon, a city’s inhabitants are suddenly overcome by an epidemic of blindness that spares only one woman. She becomes a guide for a small group of strangers in this dark, emotive parable that questions the very nature of democracy.
