Synopsis: Desamparo is the bittersweet saga of a woman who returns to Portugal for the first time in more than fifty years to meet the mother she'd lost when taken off at three years of age by her father, to Brazil. Written with intelligence, compassion and dark humor, and set in an imaginary village in Portugal that serves as a microcosm and a crossroads for the global ebb and flow of immigrants and emigrants, strivers and losers, a community of the lost and found searching for a new life while struggling to survive the catastrophes of the worst economic crisis in recent memory.
