ABOUT THE MOVIE

Director's note //

In 2006, I migrated from Goiania to Sao Paulo. From there I started my first hitchhiking trips, on which the path is as important as the destination. Most of the people who stopped were truckers, all men. In general, they give you a ride to talk and feel the time pass faster. However, one of the times I was asking for a ride, a woman driving a big truck stopped: she was Fabiana. We traveled from Sao Paulo to Brasilia for two days. On this way, we began to know each other and she told me many of her incredible stories.   

 

So, fascinated by her life story, I decided to make this road movie, to better understand this woman who loves to tell her stories, but at the same time leaves a lot between the lines. This decision was confirmed when she told me that she would retire. For Fabiana, "retiring" does not only mean stopping work, but also setting residence. So it was crucial to make this film on her last journey, which symbolizes an end and a new beginning. On the way, her girlfriend, Priscila, also a trans woman, embarked unexpectedly on the journey, bringing more complexity to the universe in which they live.
