Based on the novel by Saroo Brierley, ‘A Long Journey Home’, which tells the story of the author himself, an Indian who 25 years after being adopted by a loving Australian couple, embarks on a journey of self-discovery to find his old family. In the plot, the young man travels thousands of kilometers in search of his brother and mother, facing adult life dilemmas and searching for his origins.


With ten episodes, No Mundo da Luna, which will premiere on HBO Max on a date yet to be defined, tells the story of Luna (Marina Moschen), a young woman who comes from a gypsy family and is a recently graduated journalist. To get closer to the profession, she ends up accepting to make a horoscope for a news portal using cards from the gypsy deck. What she doesn’t realize is that the letters inherited from her family — and with centuries of history — speak to her. Literally. The series is based on the book of the same title by Carina Rissi.
