BABY (Gloria Pires), a chain-smoking guitar teacher in her forties, craves for a romantic relationship. When musician MAX (Paulo Miklos) moves into the apartment next door, she sees the possibility of turning her lonely life around. Instead, she unexpectedly finds herself involved in a love triangle leading to a terrible jealous rage.

A bad time to give up smoking!

Love, sex, agony and death... Anna Muylaerts Smoke Gets In Your Eyes balances the fine line between comedy and tragedy, taking its characters on a journey to and from the dark side. As in life, they end up bruised, but perhaps better human beings in the long run.
