Anton Pilipa crossed two continents, walking mostly barefoot with nothing but the clothes he was wearing. His family desperately searched for this former aid worker who suffers from schizophrenia and had completely given up before receiving this shocking news. Anton had simply fled the country because he had to go to court for gun violence.
A Brazilian policewoman of Canadian origin found Pilipa, who she mistook for a beggar at first. The whole family was in total shock. And with good reason. Anton had crossed at least ten countries: Canada, the United States, Mexico, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, Venezuela, Argentina and finally Brazil.
Anton has nevertheless managed this incredible journey and his reunion with his family is a miracle after the many trials he has experienced: flights, a lack of food and crossing the Amazon rainforest...a true survivor!
