TRAIN OF SALT AND SUGAR, THE

Mozambique

Set in civil war-torn northern Mozambique during the late 1980s, THE TRAIN OF SALT AND SUGAR follows a group of passengers aboard the single train which connects Nampula to Malawi. No civilians are allowed and yet hundreds risk their lives through 700km of sabotaged tracks. Salomão and Taiar are two soldiers who don't get along. Rosa is a young nurse on her way to her first job. Mariamu, her close friend, only hopes to trade salt for sugar. Amongst bullets and laughter, stories unfold as the train advances under attack, ever so slowly, toward the next stop. (Note courtesy of Ukbar Filmes.)
