Synopsis : 

An old Brazilian legend says that the African gods created the feeling of sauda to remind people of where they come from and who they are. Now that the director’s old parents need more support, the sense of dislocation is really making its presence felt. Saudade is a richly layered film about immigration and identity, and about how culture forms one’s worldview. Will returning to Brazil liberate Galiao from this feeling?
