ARÁBIA

ARÁBIA

Andre is a young boy that lives in an industrial neighborhood in Ouro Preto, Brazil, near an old aluminium factory. One day he finds a notebook from one of the factory workers, Cristiano. As a fairy tail, the film divides itself, and plunges into Cristiano’s life. And what we see and listen from this point on is the epic story of the latter’s life – a worker’s life whose happiness and sufferings reveal from another point of view the story of Brazilian social and economical development in the last ten years.
