Beyond the Road is a road movie which takes place in Uruguay. Disenchanted Santiago and Juliette meet and try to escape their current lives. The twenty-somethings become friends, survive a crisis together and start again to look for meaning, confronting what they encounter during their journey. This subtle film delights with its visual side – the spectacular landscapes of Uruguay (which becomes the third hero) convey the anxiety of youth and the beauty of nature while becoming a background in the search for inner order.
The film Beyond the Road was chosen by Pictorial Candi.
