Introduction

In 1755, the famous Portuguese tile maker Pêro Manuel Pires is committed to freeing the enslaved with proceeds of his art. He hires the freed to work in his tile factory, triggering rage and repercussions from a competitor.

Pêro harbors a female artist whose risqué creations keep the shop’s works in demand by Lisbon’s elite. The success of her designs does not sit well with one of Pêro’s longtime workers, bringing him and his loved ones under the menacing eye of the Inquisition, with threat of imprisonment and closure of his shop.

Risking his life and liberty, Pêro is determined to push forward. But on All Saints Day, November 1st, Portugal is struck by earthquakes, tidal waves and massive fires. Will he escape? Or stay to fight for freedom and the future?
