Brazil in a different present: a subversive, psychedelic and freaky road movie through a dystopian tropical dictatorship.
While Brazil is being subjugated by a military junta and corrupt priests conjure up the apocalypse, an eccentric band of outsiders set out to offer some resistance. Their first task is to get weapons to a group of militant nuns who live in the jungle on the proceeds of their cannabis plantation. But to have a chance against the reactionary junta, all subversive elements need to be armed -- and the trip through the country gets ever more extreme.
