O CAMINHO DAS NUVENS (Der Weg in die Wolken)

A moving story about a family from Paraíba that cycles 3200 km to Rio, looking for a better job for the obstinate father and a better life for all of them. A film that believes in miracles. Based on true events it tells the story of the obstinate, illiterate truck driver Romao who feels that it is his fate to be allowed to earn a thousand Real a month – a considerable amount by Brazilian standards. Romao needs that amount to maintain his wife Rose and five children, including a rebellious teenager and a baby.
