Did You Know?


The series follows closely real events, particularly with respect to famous people (who appear under alternative names but whose real-life counterparts are easily identifiable in Brazil). One artistic license was particularly controversial in Brazil: Jose Higino (the alternative name for former President Lula da Silva) speaks in a private conversation about the need to "staunch the bleeding" (estancar a sangria), in a reference to the large number of high-level people being investigated, arrested, or indicted by the Lava Jato operation. In reality, the phrase was captured in a wiretapped phone conversation being said by Senator Romero Jucá. The Senator at one point was the leader of the Government caucus in the Senate during Dilma Rousef's Presidency, but eventually changed position and supported her impeachment. See more »

Incredible political thriller based on the current situation in Brazil. More instigating than House of Cards.

It shows the reality behind the scenes of the politics of the largest South American country and how it is fought.
