    • Synopsis
    • What do a frog farmer, a kidnapper, a plastic surgeon and a Senator have in common? With its sometimes brutal, sometimes comic assessments, Manda Bala skilfully draws a picture of some of the worst ailments affecting the body politic in Modern Brazil. From sleazy senators living the high life while they cipher billions from the public coffers, to bizarre money laundering operations paid for by the government to men who make their living from healing the wounds of traumatised kidnap victims, Manda Bala teases out the causes of crime from the loftiest mansion to the lowliest favela and in so doing paints a vivid picture of a political system at breaking point.
