Tender and uplifting Oscar entry from Brazil
An emotionally-layered ensemble drama, Mars One tells a classic story of a family in crisis. While a far-right politician takes power in Brazil, a young woman realizes she’s queer and falls in love for the first time.
Her little brother has a new love as well: science. But as he looks to the stars his father tries to bring him back to Earth, pushing him into a soccer career he’s not sure he actually wants.
Meanwhile, the matriarch of the family is going through her own private struggle, triggered by new trauma.
