August speaks of the aspirations, the sacrifices, the life changes, the frustrations and of the triumphs and joys of the Portuguese émigrés, a social group that brought much economic wealth to Portugal. From scorn to compassion, the actors and audience journey by bus, by boat, by train, even flat-bed truck, tasting emotions that no doubt will aid in better understanding these people, who today continue to be thought of as the “other” Portuguese.
