Enjoy the simple pleasures of a lighthearted family road trip through Brazil. An ode to director Bárbara Cariry's childhood memories, Young Warriors is the story of a fisherman who is inspired by a dream to hit the road with his family in search of adventure and festival.

Cosme’s father’s old jeep calls to him one day. He gets it running and mother Maria gets packing. Their son Benedito and his young cousins Matheuzinho and Bruna pile in and they take off from the coast. Their destination is the city of Barbahla, to reconnect with old friends for the Festa da Pau da Bandeira, a celebration of Saint Anthony of Padua. The family takes their time, stopping as often as they like along the way. Hopping out from the breezy old jeep, the parents and three children marvel at many amusements together--extraterrestrials, dinosaurs, an old Cinema, street performers, and of course, gorgeous scenery. Young Warriors is a sunny, easygoing, unforgettable trip for all ages. (Deb Girdwood)
