In this travelogue drama based on the true story of a friend of director Fellipe Barbosa, Gabriel, a Brazilian student, decides to travel through Africa on a year-long backpacking trip before beginning his graduate studies at UCLA. The last months of Gabriel Buchmann's life are the subject of the film, "a perceptive and poetic hybrid of documentary and fiction. It both captures and gently critiques Gabriel's free-spirited, adventurous sensibility....A remarkable and full-throated elegy, a work of art that is full of life."
