MADE FOR TV SPIN-OFF FROM "I OWE YOU A LETTER ABOUT BRAZIL"
Iramaya was a quiet housewife, married to an Army colonel, when the illegal arrest of her youngest son Cesar by the Brazilian Military Dictatorship forced her to transform her peaceful daily routine and fight for her son’s freedom. Later, as a founding member of the Brazilian Committee for Amnesty, Iramaya became a sort of “Mother Courage” icon, as she told and retold her stories of struggle. After her passing, her granddaughter Carol found a box of intimate letters written by her to a Swedish friend for 36 years. The letters revealed hidden conflicts, and Carol started a search for her family’s past.
