synopsis

After the invasion of Rio slums by the security the bandits were forced to refuge in country towns.

The increase in crime and the brutal killing of two children at São Judas do Livramento moves public opinion in the country. The government calls marshal Paul Froes and his team of incorruptible policemen to resolve the situation. In two months crime levels fall dramatically and the city policemen are worshiped by public opinion. The government celebrates. But the "honeymoon" doesn’t last long. Gradually the strict use of the law begins to hassle everybody, reaching the region most influential people. A dangerous conflict between civil and military police explodes when an MP is caught red-handed by the staff of marshal Froes. Again the government is forced to intercede in São Judas do Livramento. But not everything will be as it was before.
