The residents of the town of Mazagan, in Brazil’s extreme North, are proud to be descendants of the last Portuguese colonists in Africa who made an epic transatlantic migration to the New World in 1770. The film documents the first ever return of two young Mazaganese to the legendary city of their origins, 246 years later.
