The Black Lorenza

ByAntonio Bellido Marin

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Based on real events. ​Between the years 1970 to 1993, the population of Mozambique endured two wars - one of liberation and a bloody civil one. The international community abandons Mozambique to its fate and all international humanitarian aid agencies, including the International Red Cross, disappear. Mozambique is declared a state failed, becoming the fourth poorest country in the world.  ​Under these circumstances, Lorenza, who owns a bar on the beach in Maputo, is denounced as a collaborator and is not allowed to travel to the city of Porto where her husband and children - all Portuguese citizens - are waiting for her. Her family has no news and she is added to the list of disappeared.  In this state of affairs is where all the action takes place - where the human miseries and heartbreak suffered by its characters are narrated.
