The Last Road to the Beach


Digital 2011 93 min


Synopsis

Leo, Norberto and Paula are much more than friends. At the beginning of a beach trip, they meet a stranger who doesn’t speak. The group of four goes on travelling, savoring the journey without any hurry. While the silent friend faces his fears, Leo, Norberto and Paula dive into the boundaries of a love triangle. In the endless sands of southern beaches, they discover it’s impossible to be cheerful all the time.

Inspired in the work O LOUCO DO CATI, by the Brazilian writer Dyonelio Machado, the story is an adventure involving three friends and a strange man. They travel along the coast of southern Brazil and, together, live singular experiences. The book was the initial fuel for a journey that mixes an unknown, mysterious individual with a love triangle.
