“Last Stop” tells the story of an immigration odyssey from Lebanon to Brazil, which has a twist en route.
In the strange claustrophobia of the journey, two childhood friends end up fighting over a woman and one ends up falling over board.
Picked up by the police and sent to prison for not having documents, decades later, he is re-found and asked for forgiveness. But their disparate routes across life and the irreversible sense of time passed presents them with a huge human challenge.
From this phrase the director begins his search for Aracy de Carvalho GuimarÃ£es Rosa.
Anonymous heroine, died forgetting and being forgotten, Victim of Alzheimer’s in a country without memory.
The only Brazilian recognized between the nations, lived in the shadow of her husband, the famous writer JoÃ£o GuimarÃ£es Rosa.
Her subversive activity in the Brazilian consulate in Hamburg saved lives in Nazi Germany. Starting from a very little documentation available and prevented from speaking about her relationship with her â€‹â€‹husband for copyright issues, the director throws light on this existence through their own personal motives.
And, what starts as a curiosity,suddenly turns into a deep gratitude
