Marshall is imprisoned and when he is released years later terminal with a tumor in the kidney, he travels to the Northeastern of Brazil to seek out Nonato's daughter Luiza. In Recife, he meets the young prostitute Bia that agrees to guide him to Petrolina, where the Luiza lives, in a quest for redemption.- Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Also, he developed cancer and went to "purge his guilt"? Come on. These people have NO feelings. It's all about the money and power. They are bullies. Another fantasy of this movie. Maybe to protect the innocent, the movie should be a REAL STORY of abuse and humiliation and NO justice is ever served on the victim and his/her family.- Written by Me
