Lula, Son of Brazil

By Lucélia Santos and Fábio Barreto

Lula, Son of Brazil is a richly produced, deeply moving story of the early years of Brazil's most beloved president, Luis Inacio Lula da Silva. As a full-fledged member of the union, Lula found his path to a life in politics. However it wasn't until he experienced an intense personal transformation following the startling death of his first wife and unborn son, that Lula found the courage and ambition he needed to take full control of his destiny.
