A Portuguese immigrant and his hot shot son: both are professional photographers but their subjects are a study in contrast. José Pimentel does weddings, communions and passport photos for the local seniors. His son George chases celebrities at film festivals around the world, searching for glamour shots of Hollywood stars. While he may sometimes get blinded by the spotlight, George still enjoys working alongside José at the family photo studio. Working in two different worlds, father and son find common ground behind the camera's lens. In the end, both try to capture something authentic and meaningful in a simple portrait.
