STILL LOVED, STILL MISSED AND VERY DEAR
The night before Beleza Cardozo was murdered in her home in Mumbai, she had a dream that a female member of the family would die. When she checked on her relatives by calling them, she couldn't know that it would be her own life taken that day.
Beleza was a warmhearted woman, who created a special atmosphere for her children at home, especially during the times when their father Tomé, a captain, would be at sea. Her son Boris is full of memories of the past, when everything was fine and they would spend their days together. When friends came over to chat, watch movies or have a drink. When, during holidays, the family traveled to the house of his grandparents in Mingfol, a small village in Goa, where their ancestors used to live under the colonial rule of the Portuguese.
Beleza not only brought love to her family, but also to everyone connected to their lives. This is the reason, that one year after the incident, Boris is able to go on with his own life: „Without my friends I would never be able to continue since my mom passed away. Because I know that they are feeling the same grief like I am, I know that I’m not alone.“
