In Rio de Janeiro, Gloria is an ambitious young woman, whose father is bankrupted. When the son of his business partner, Marcos, arrives in Rio, her father asks Gloria to have a trip with him in their boat Boa Vida. Gloria, her boyfriend Danny and their common friend Jeff get Marcos in his hotel and they go to Angra dos Reis. While in the sea, they drink Caipirinha and beer, and Gloria flirts with the wealthy Marcos. The jealous Danny sees they kissing each other, throws Marcos in the water with a lifebuoy and drives the boat to a distant island to scare Marcos. However, they have a problem with the propellers and when they return to the spot, they do not find Marcos anymore. Afraid of the consequences of his possible drowning, they discuss alibis and how to resolve the situation, shattering their relationship in an environment of high-tension and selfishness.

Shoot yourself before you see this movie
13 November 2002 | by Darkest_RoseSee all my reviews

This movie didn't look to bad on the cover so I decided to rent it. Oh my god, it's one of the dumbest movies ever made. What were the people thinking when they made this pile of crap? I kept hoping this movie would get better but it got worse by the minute. I was dissapointed with dominique swain. She's a good actress but this movie is her worst.The actors were so annoying, i would shoot them if I was on the boat with them. THat forgein mexican guy or whatever the hell he is, was so freaking ugly and annoying , i would have thrown him in the water myself and left him there, bad movie 0/10
