Synopsis

Carmo would do anything to escape the hellhole of a Brazilian border town where she lives. So when a lonesome, wheelchair-bound low-life named Marco arrives on the scene, she jumps at the chance to help him transport a shipment of smuggled goods. An unlikely romance unfolds as the two are chased through a lush and jagged South American landscape by bandidos, the police and their own passions alike. A lawless, reckless journey of self-discovery, this Sundance dazzler refuels the classic road-trip genre.

Starring Seu Jorge (City of God, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou).

Reviews

"A screwball road movie inspired by the wildest stylings of Leone, Fellini and Tarantino!"
- Variety

"Terrifically offbeat and charming! Intriguing characters and strong lead performances. Double crosses, playful absurdity, and even a little romance." - This Week in New York

"Pulp Fiction meets It Happened One Night. Rueful humor and tropical sensuality!"
- The New York Times

"The charismatic leads display an undeniable chemistry." - The Hollywood Reporter

"Road movie, character study, thriller, travelogue, chase film, comedy, religious satire, globalization tract, family dramedy...this lively movie is so full of vivacious characters and non-stop events that the few times it pauses to rest a bit, you’ll be happy to catch your breath." - Trust Movies
