Marco is a lonely handicapped Spanish smuggler, driving through Brazil to sell out his cheap goods. When two bandits assault him and steal his load, he is miraculously saved by Carmo, a beautiful local girl who would rather die than spend another day in the hellhole where she lives. Carmo and Marco will start a lawless, reckless journey, and an intense romance through a breathtaking South American border landscape. Written by

To explore the context of the Brazilian borders with neighboring countries was a major insight, and can still be used beyond this one film. These borders are a rich and intense context and to me will certainly capture the attention of many once it is out and exposed, much like it happened with the Favelas.
Aside from that, Carmo's storyline is exciting from the beginning to the end with excellent casting, both, main characters and secondary ones.
There is not one person that has seen this movie that will not tell me that it makes to the top 3 Brazilian movies so far.
Despite being widely recognized and acclaimed in Mostras, the movie is not released yet and could only be seen in Mostras de Cinema. A real pity when economic interest gets in the way of art and public.
