    • Synopsis
    • Overman is your typical Brazilian Super Hero. Yes, he can fly and he’s pretty much unbreakable. But there is no glamour here! Overman lives in a shit-hole with his grifter roommate, is always struggling to pay the bills, is constantly in an identity crisis, and even when he fulfills his mission he leaves a wake of massive destruction behind him (angering city officials and citizens alike). In the film, Overman has finally rid his native São Paulo of its roster of super villains and is invited to join the world-famous JUSTICE DEFENDERS – the all-American league of the best super heroes in the world. However, as he is sent on his first mission, Overman is as usual, unprepared. His lack of ability to speak English creates a communication issue with his league mates, which in turn results in total catastrophe. Overman is solely responsible for the Justice Defenders’ historic first defeat. And what a massive defeat it is!
