In this Brazilian crime drama, a veteran gangster tells his young protégé about his life and times as a hit man while awaiting the arrival of a contact in a crummy bar. His story unfurls via flashback and much of it centers on the old killer's professional relationship and friendship with his famous late partner who went from being a pimp to one of the most feared mobsters in South America until he dallied too long with a crime lord's wife and got caught. The enraged don then devised a devious form of revenge involving both partners.
