Produced by Fernando Meirelles (CITY OF GOD) and Ramin Bahrani (THE WHITE TIGER, MAN PUSH CART), Alexandre Moratto's (SÓCRATES) powerful sophomore feature follows 18-year-old Mateus (Christian Malheiros, SÓCRATES), a young man who leaves his countryside home with big hopes to take a job in a São Paulo junkyard run by the hard-driving Luca (Brazilian superstar Rodrigo Santoro, CHE, LOST, WESTWORLD). When Mateus and his six fellow workers discover that they have inadvertently walked into a trap, forced to work for no pay in exchange for the safety of their families, Mateus strikes a Faustian bargain with Luca that will draw him deep into the dangerous underground world of human trafficking and force him to walk the fine line between oppressed and oppressor.
