About the film:

Based on a French book by the celebrated author Martin Page, “Maybe A Love Story” tells the story of Virgílio, a man who leads a safe, organized and empty life, until the unexpected happens: a message on his answering machine. Clara is breaking up with him. His friends start calling to see how he’s holding up – the whispers about his heartbreaking drama are spreading around. But that’s not what’s troubling Virgílio. Who is Clara? Was he dating someone and he’s the only one who didn’t know?

Questioning his memory and his sanity, the event makes him hop a train in the opposite direction of where his life was heading, in search for his mysterious ex.

In a fun tailspin of unrelenting self-analysis and existential crisis, Virgílio comes face-to-face with the one thing in life that he had always tried to avoid: love.

Does Clara really exist? Will Virgílio find her?
