Written by Emmy-nominated writer André Murraças, “Barba Rija” follows the lives of three friends, António, Pedro and Ursão (Big Bear), who are bears with hearts of gold living in Lisbon. They work, go out at night and find themselves in romantic adventures. Pedro is the romantic. António is rational, but with a secret passion. Ursão is tough on the outside…but a sweetheart inside. Together the three form a fellowship, depicting various types of masculinity, affection, daily strife and expectations, touching on all parts of the human spirit.
