At the height of lockdown, a film crew is isolated on a farm in Sintra to make a movie. Over days, Crista, Carloto, and João try to create their characters, but a series of mishaps involving the crew causes moments of tension and anxiety that complicate the creative process. In an attempt to overcome the problems, they decide to throw a party. As suggested by the title itself, the proposition is to void any possible surprise in the narrative, subverting the concept of spoiler: the movie starts at the end and, day after day, advances towards its beginning. During this process of an “inverted chronology”, the characters return as actress (Crista Alfaiate), actors (Carloto Cotta and João Nunes Monteiro), and the usual creative collaborators (Mariana Ricardo, Vasco Pimentel, Patrick Mendes, among others) come up on the screen.
