"If you two don't stop fighting, I'm going to pull this car over and leave you by the side of the road." Cris and her brother don't, so their parents do. Stranded in the rugged northwest of Brazil, the bickering doesn't stop and the siblings part ways. On her own, 12-year-old Cris is forced to navigate a world far from her upper-middle-class upbringing. This modern fable about independence and identity, subtly dissects issues of class and race in modern day Brazil. Best Film, Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress, 2012 Brasilia Film Festival; Official Selection, 2013 Rotterdam, New Directors/New Films, San Francisco Film Festivals.
