A steamy love triangle set in the low life milieu of Brazil's Salvador del Bahia, where violence is always likely to erupt, Deco (Lazaro Ramos) and Naldhino (Wagner Moura) are lifelong best friends and co-owners of a small boat. On a trip down the river they give a ride to Karinna (Alice Braga), a young hooker whose services they enthusiastically pay for. Neither of them realises the force of passion, obsession and jealousy they are about to unleash.
Dull and pointlessly violent

Never one to shy away from gritty or violent films, I watched this offering expecting a moving story that would captivate me. Instead I was bored and indifferent to a story that lacked any real substance and, instead, focused too much on protracted scenes of violence to compensate for the lack of credible story.
