    • Synopsis
    • When a scandal is uncovered, involving embezzling of funds and reported abuse in the work place at the French Consulate in Rio, an envoy from the Government is sent to clean up the mess and bury this delicate affair. However, a sudden unexpected heart attack in his office the day he arrives turns everything upside down. His two assistants discover the body and not knowing how to handle the situation, clumsily provoke a series of unbelievable and risky events which allow them to take control of the Embassy, unbeknown to their colleagues. Talents emerge, love affairs are revealed, complexes vanish - but things don't get any easier. Love and lies are not a good combination and it all gets very tense. Sooner or later, the truth will emerge - when you have a corpse on your hands, you're in over your head...
