Gabriel Buchmann was a Brazilian student who went missing after a backpacking trip in 2009, and was later found dead on a mountain in Malawi. Now his former school mate has made a riveting film about Gabriel's last journey in Eastern Africa. An uplifting film about meetings between people and nature, and a sober celebration of the transcendental power that lies in traveling and the people you meet along the way. The voices of the people Gabriel met during his journey add valuable nuances to a portrait of an idealist.
