O Estrangeiro (The Foreigner)

Synopsis

A character almost absent from the image searches, in 2009's Macao, for the Foreigner character, someone who lived there fifteen years before. Helped by the letters written to him by the Foreigner during that period and having recently arrived, he tries to find his lost friend reconstituting all that he imagined from the information. Thus, he traces in the present, the trails the Foreigner left in the past, while creating remnants of a new absence.
