Great Brazilian novelist Paulo Coelho’s life (Júlio Andrade) gets the film treatment in this true-life story, when a younger Paulo was equally fixated by the mysteries of writing, black magic and rock ‘n’ roll.   A suicide attempt, car accident, three different trips to a mental institution, drugs, torture and all imaginable struggles a man could face, molded Paulo’s life into one of the most acclaimed writers of all time. Having sold over 165 million books, Paulo Coelho is one of the world’s best-selling authors of all time. His books have been translated into 80 languages and published in more than 150 countries around the world.
