A lie from the past.
Two children taken by force.
The search and the reunion of a mother and her children.
Leonor Trigo was only 16 years-old when she fell in love with Gonçalo, a 24-year-old famous motorcycle racer who ends up getting her pregnant with twins. Realizing that Gonçalo will never accept the children, she hides her pregnancy from everyone. When Leonor at the end of her pregnancy, her father, Alberto Trigo, discovers the truth and demands that Gonçalo take responsibility. Gonçalo panics for fear of a lawsuit, with the certainty that a scandal of a relationship with a minor would drive sponsors away and cause him serious problems in the family.
Gonçalo turns to a friend who is a doctor and convinces Patrícia Santos – Leonor’s best-friend – to help him. The delivery is made at his friend’s clinic, with the help of the doctor’s wife, nurse Alice Amorim. Leonor is sedated during childbirth. When she wakes up, they don’t tell her she had twins and ensure her that the baby was stillborn. One of the babies (the girl) is handed to Gonçalo’s sister – Amélia – who couldn’t have children of her own. The other baby (the boy) is left by Patrícia at a church.
Sixteen years later, Leonor Trigo (now 32) works as a diving instructor in the Emirates. She never got over the loss of her baby, so it is a great shock when Alice shows up to tell her the truth about that night. Suddenly all her certainties are shaken as Leonor realizes that she gave birth to two healthy children who are probably still alive. Without thinking twice, she immediately decides to return to Portugal in order to search for her children and get revenge from the people who lied to her.
At present Patrícia Santos (34) is married to Gonçalo Queiroz (39) and the two have a daughter together, “Kika” Queiroz (14). Patrícia took advantage of what she knew to blackmail Gonçalo and force him to marry her. They panic when they realize Leonor is back and knows the truth. They are determined to do everything to silence her and by all mean necessary.
On her arrival to Portugal, Leonor also reunites with André Queiroz (34). She was his first crush, who has never truly forgotten her. Leonor comes close to him in order to get more information about her children. Initially, she only intends to use him, but she will eventually fall for him and they will live a beautiful love story.
In the privileged landscape of Sado Estuary, “Salty Sea” is about the fight of a woman in the search for her children. A mirror of the Portuguese reality with contemporary dramas and conflicts along with romance and comedy.
