Dora (Fernanda Montenegro), who writes letters for illiterate people at Rio de Janeiro's central railroad station, feels compelled to help 9-year-old Josué (Vinicius De Oliveira) locate his estranged father after the child's mother dies in a car accident. This Oscar-nominated drama follows the interplay between Dora and the boy during their journey to Brazil's remote Northeast region, their bond growing ever stronger with each mile logged.
