Maria do Carmo, 22-year-old Brazilian girl, would rather die than spend another day in the hellhole at Brazil and Paraguay border where she lives. She meets Marco, 32-year-old Spanish, a loner and wheelchair-bound small-tmie criminal who is desperately looking for someone to unload fresh transport of drugs…
