    • Synopsis
    • Griselda Gallardo, a 60 years old quite eccentric woman, is the leader of a cartel located in the triple border between Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina. She’s an expert in trading people in a vegetative state for fugitives who start living in their place. Miguel is a fugitive drug dealer with a luxurious lifestyle who was facing a death threat and therefore forced to vanish. He starts living in Joanópolis (a small city in São Paulo countryside) with a sketchy family that accepts to host him. He’s sharing a bedroom with William, the 10 years old son who will end up learning “great” lessons from his new master.
