Storyline

In the tiny poor town of Asa Branca, in the middle of Brazilian Northeast, Roque Santeiro is worshiped as a saint. He was supposedly killed by a bandit, 18 years ago, trying to save the local church. After his disappearance, local leaderships such as landowner Sinhozinho Malta and mayor Florindo, took profit on that to control the humble population. They even make up a widow, Porcina, who should have married Roque secretly before his death. What they don't expect is that Roque is alive, and he's back to, allegedly, "save his people". Now Malta, Florindo, Porcina, and others must hold him down and explain the "truth" to their commoners, in a desperate attempt to save their own bottoms. Meanwhile, mysterious facts surround Asa Branca, such as a Werewolf, a film crew who are trying to shoot a movie about Roque's story, and violent murderers. Dias Gomes writes about small towns in marvelous satires of local authorities and their hypocrisy. Written by Pedro Aguiar <paguiar@alternex.com>

Amazing Soap Opera!
13 July 2004 | by (São Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

This was by far the best interpretation of Regina Duarte, best Brazilian soap opera actress of all times. Her acting together with that of Lima Duarte, another monster, is superb! I think this was also the biggest hit on prime time in Brazil. Reaching almost 100 % audience, it was a remarkable success.

Also amazingly important was the casting. Names such as Denis Carvalho, Armando Bogus, Othon Bastos and Claudio Cavalcante starred this incredible series. Directed by Gonzaga Blota and Jayme Monjardim, this was one of those programs never to be forgotten!
