An retired police precinct chief from Copacabana finds his fate taking an unsettling turn after becoming the main suspect in the death of his lover - a prominent Rio de Janeiro streetwalker - in director Jose Joffily's tense underworld thriller. Vieira used be a high profile law enforcer, but these days he spends most of his time in the company of lusty prostitute Magali. When Magali is murdered, the authorities quickly shift their suspicions to Vieira and crooked cop Montiero begins blackmailing the former precinct chief. Now, as Vieira faces crooked cops on one side and murderous thugs on the other, he finds a last chance at happiness in the form of the beautiful Flor. But on the streets of Rio love and death can go hand in hand, and the man who used to enforce the law will now find himself forced to take a violent stance against it.~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide
