Fabiana is a seasoned truck driver who’s been driving along Brazil’s highways for the past 30 years. The fact that she is transgendered has no effect on her nomadic life. Now, as she approaches retirement, Fabiana realizes her life is about to change dramatically. The home she was escaping for a nomadic life on the road, the home where she lives with her younger partner will become her whole world.
Director Brunna Laboissière joins Fabiana on her final trips and crafts an intimate portrait of a trans woman whose favorite place is the trunk of her truck. Brazil’s busy highways are endless adventure routes which she loves cruising through.
This is a film with a great big heart that is also a love letter for life as is, to the residents of Brazil’s small towns, and to one extraordinary Fabiana.
