Home - O País da Ilusão still

Struggling with loneliness after having lived in eight countries, Lilia, a Colombian citizen, grows old alone in Portugal - far away from her homeland and her family.

“HOME” is a personal reflection on loneliness, identity and the sense of life. The film talk about roots, cultures, identity, nationality but in essence surpasses them because the need for identity is common to all human beings. In a mobile world in which more and more families live scattered throughout various countries, Lilia's struggles could be a mirror for the future of our generation.
