A man receives a heart-shaped charm from a friend to put around his neck. When the jewel disappears, the man panics and cannot deal with the feelings that the gesture and the loss of the trinket arouse him. In a crazy and bloody act he will do the unthinkable. 

O Berloque Vermelho (The Red Trinket) is a short story written in 1875 by António José da Silva Pinto and is considered one of the first homosexual representations in Portuguese literature. The horror tale genre at the time was the only way to present a love seen as a crime, in an alienated way and with a tragic ending.
