With keen affection and an understanding of its characters, Mars One explores the hopes and expectations, the anxieties and foibles, of a Brazilian family against the backdrop of the 2018 election of Brazil’s far-right president, Jair Bolsonaro.

Early in Mars One, university student Eunice makes her way through a sweaty nightclub toward another woman, making it clearer than ever that she’s probably not destined for the life her family expects. But Eunice’s rapport with her supportive working-class parents doesn’t make coming out any easier. Meanwhile, younger brother Deivinho shows more interest in becoming an astrophysicist than the soccer star his father wants him to be.
