Bernardo Nascimento’s North Atlantic is a true-to-life story about an air-traffic controller’s nightshift, and the distress call that would form an everlasting friendship. A beautifully appropriate depiction of life-affirming material that ironically / tragically fits its given runtime.
Official summary can be read as follows:
“An isolated air-traffic controller in an island of the Azores archipelago receives a transatlantic emergency signal from a lost plane. As the engagement with the lone pilot unfolds, it emerges that their new found friendship will not last through the night.”
