Director Rene' Sampaio's debut Feature, Brazilian Western is loosely based on the epic folk ballad by Brazilian rock band Legiao Urbana. João (Fabrício Boliveira, Elite Squad 2), an outlaw from the provinces, tries his luck in the capital after jail time for killing a corrupt cop. His shady cousin gets him a job as a carpenter’s assistant, but insists that João help him on the side with his drug-dealing business. Meanwhile, João falls for a senator’s daughter completely out of his class, but the rebellious young woman is only too eager to fall under his amorous spell. As might be expected in a legend, a powerful rival also has an eye out…
