Fictionalized account of the adventures of hired gunman Antonio das Mortes, set against the real life last days of rural banditism. The movie follows Antonio as he witnesses the descent of common rural worker Manuel into a life of crime, joining the gang of Antonio's sworn enemy, Corisco the Blond Devil (Othon Bastos), and the Pedra Bonita Massacre.

During the shooting of the scene in which Corisco (Othon Bastos
) and Rosa (Yoná Magalhães
) kiss passionately, Yoná Magalhães' husband was sitting off-camera, right beside the two actors. During the interview taped for the DVD release, Bastos confessed he was really nervous about it, and wanted to ask the man to leave - but didn't have the nerve to do it. See more
