FILM GUIDE ALMOST EVERY DAY
Almost Every Day blurs the lines between documentary and fiction as it depicts a day in the life of a mother-daughter team. On a strange winter day we accompany them on their long journey from home in the faraway neighborhood of Recreio dos Bandeirantes to downtown Rio de Janeiro as young mother Polly struggles against time, traffic, the temptations of big-city life, and her own inadequacies.
