He works as a teacher and dabbles in romance while struggling to understand why his father left. Selton Mello directed, co-wrote, and co-stars in this drama, which has received several awards at Lapa's film festival.

About the film festival asbl

The first edition of the Brazilian Film Festival in Luxembourg was launched in 2011 by a group of Brazilian expats passionate about culture. The event has now become an annual fixture in the Grand-Duchy’s cultural calendar. The aim of the independent not-for-profit association Festival du Film Brésilien is to introduce Luxembourg’s residents to various aspects of Brazilian culture and to ward of stereotypical views that are often linked to the image of Brazil.
