    • True Story based on the life of a poor guy and professor of Muay Thai Fabio Leão. His story begins explosively, when he was 20 years old. The character comes from the slum of Vila Kenedy in a suburb of Rio.He was involved with the traffic of drugs and banditry. The movieapproches fighting as in the classic movie "Rocco and His Brothers" by Visconti,although "Last Chance" is a social and political story of overcoming. A dramatic life, Fábio had been involved with prisons and had passion for the ring since he was a teenager, and by teaching. Everything is mixed with a 20 year old love for Luciana.
      Realistic and epic, the story of Fábio is a film about the redemption of a man.
