CGiii Comment

It's difficult to take this seriously...with a motley crew of bad actors and the eyesore of 70s fashion.

With a psychopathic gang boss who just happens to be drag queen, it stretches credulity to breaking point

Throw in a screeching soundtrack - it is unlikely that you will see it through to its deafening end.

The(ir) Blurb...

In Lapa, Rio de Janeiro, the homosexual drug dealer lord Rainha Diaba (Milton Gonçalves) decides to find a scapegoat to save his lover from the jail for traffic with students. His gang, under the command of Catitu (Nelson Xavier), uses the young pimp Bereco (Stepan Nercessian), but he escapes from the police siege and decides to break and rob the points where Rainha Diaba sells his marijuana, initiating a bloody war against the powerful dealer.
