    • Synopsis
    • Brazil, 18th Century. The colony of Portugal endures a decline in gold production. A Portuguese minority rules over a corrupt and autocratic society formed mostly by African slaves, local Indians and mestizos. Joaquim is an efficient military famous for capturing gold smugglers. He longs to be compensated with a Lieutenant promotion to buy the freedom of Blackie --a slave he is in love with. But the promotion never comes through. Joaquim despairs. A risky mission to the feared Badlands in search of new gold mines appears to be the only way to achieve a longed-for promotion and free Blackie.
