LONG WAY HOME
Juliana moves from the small town of Itaúna in southeastern Brazil to the growing city of Contagem. Working for the city's health authority, she'll help to combat epidemics in the region. At her new job, she meets people and experiences unusual situations that start to change her life. At the same time, her marriage is on the brink. This sensitive character study turns a sympathetic eye to people on the edge of society whom one doesn't often see in films, and unpretentiously appeals to a whole country to get a fresh start.
