Farwell Amor


After being forced to leave his family in Angola, Walter must reconnect with his wife and daughter as they reunite in his one-bedroom Brooklyn apartment 17 years later. Struggling to overcome the emotional and physical distance that has grown between them, it’s Walter’s passion for dance that unearths a connection with his teenage daughter, and reminds him of why he fell in love with his wife all those years ago.
