The Option

A Opção ou As Rosas da Estrada

Brazil, 1981


Combining documentary and staged action, Candeias delves into the profoundly quotidian reality of a group of rural women who cut sugar cane and live meekly in ramshackle highway communities, some of them desiring to escape to a better life.
