Called the Quentin Tarantino of Brazil, director Jose Fonseca creates a gangster fairy tale of drugs, guns, sex and rock-n-roll. Maiquel loses a bet and must dye his hair blond. This little event triggers a head-on collision with destiny and Maiquel goes from nobody to hero to outlaw…all in 24 hours. With gangsters and cops hot on his trail, Maiquel is just hoping to live through the night with his gorgeous new companion, but she might just be the most dangerous one of all.
