"Brazil My Love"

At a time of great social and political upheaval in Brazil, BRAZIL MY LOVE follows the relationship between Morena Brazil and Osvaldo, who live in the United States, from its inception through its seemingly inevitable break-up. Their failing relationship is held in sharp contrast to a loud, convivial Brazilian dinner, organized by expatriates, to discuss the recent riots in Brazil.
