PROGRAM NOTE

Based on the true story of Brazilian country music duo Zeze Di Camargo & Luciano, the film portrays Francisco, a poor tenant farmer in the hinterlands of Goias, and his dream of turning two of his nine children into famous country musicians. He places his hope in his first son, Mirosmar, giving him an accordion at the age of 11. Mirosmar and his brother Emival, who gets a guitar, **begin** to perform successfully in county fairs and festivals. That is until the early 70’s, when the family is forced off the land and move to the state capital of Goiania. To help the family make ends meet, the two boys perform at the local bus station. There, they meet Miranda, a country music agent, who takes them on a four-month road tour. The boys are already making a hit and have sung for 6 thousand people across the hinterlands of Brazil when an accident brings a dramatic halt to the duo’s career.
