1942. Johann, a young German opposed to Hitler's war, travels the dusty roads of northeastern Brazil selling a new wonder drug, Aspirin, to peasants and farmers. Along the way he picks up a hitchhiker, the sharp-tongued Ranulpho, who helps in his efforts. But as Brazil enters the war against Germany and Johann is ordered back home, each man must decide his own fate.
