Synopsis: 

Loosely based on legendary Brasília rock band Legiao Urbana’s seminal folk song, ‘Faroeste Caboclo,’ René Sampaio’s lyrical, fable-like feature debut follows a young man from the provinces who decides to try his luck in the capital, where he falls in with a rough crowd—and falls for a senator’s daughter.
