Reunited after a 17-year separation, Walter, an Angolan immigrant, is joined in the U.S. by his wife, Esther, and teenage daughter Sylvia.

Now absolute strangers sharing a one-bedroom apartment, they discover a shared love of dance that may help overcome the distance between them.

Nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance, director Ekwa Msangi crafts a vibrant, eye-opening film full of music, atmosphere, and emotional complexity. There are three sides to every story in Farewell Amor, an intergenerational, and truthful exploration of family, and rediscovery.
