Maya Nilo (Laura)

Synopsis : Old Irma’s daughters and granddaughter take the road to go see her in Sagres, Portugal. Laughter, arguments and heartbreaks follow. Nilo is a feminist writer, living an orderly life with her husband and teenager Laura. When her irresponsible sister Maya, whose projects constantly tend to bomb, ‘kidnaps’ Nilo’s Volvo and daughter and heads south, Nilo tags along. The goal is Portugal, where the sisters' complicated mother lives with Maya’s son, who it has finally become time to take responsibility for.
