Synopsis by Brian Gusse
This Brazilian erotic thriller tells the story of a young boy named Hugo who is sent to stay with his mother in a large, expensive house. It turns out that the house is a brothel and his mother is one of its resident prostitutes. Years later, Hugo, now an old politician, returns to the house to relive what happened there. The main reason to watch this film is the presence of Xuxa Meneghel. She plays a prostitute named Tampa who passes herself off to her customers as a German virgin, does a long striptease, and tries to seduce Hugo -- a far cry from the image she put forth several years later as Xuxa, the host of a wildly popular international children's television show produced in Brazil.
