In a car, driving from Berlin to Switzerland through Italy and Greece, there are Martha, her father Kurt, and her best friend Betty. The reason for the trip is the assisted suicide of Kurt, a terminally ill man. United by the same, painful destination, each of them deals with their own personal trip made of fear, concern and solitude. It is a road movie, not too dramatic, and a therapeutic itinerary also for the audience.
Nana Neul (Bielefeld 1974 – Germany) completed her film making studies in the year 2000 at the Kunsthochschule für Medien in Cologne. She started developing the script of ‘Mein Freund aus Faro’, her first feature film, at the Drehbuchwerkstatt in 2003 in Munich.
The film has won numerous nominations and awards in festivals around the world.
