A riveting tale of ordinary people pushed to extremes, the latest from Brazilian director Julia Rezende hits the ground running, with old friends Clivia and Regina arguing over, of all things, whether or not to kidnap a millionaire. These ladies aren’t the criminal type, but times are tough, jobs are hard to find and harder to keep, and life is expensive—especially if you’re planning a wedding. When Clivia’s beau Vladimir finds himself newly unemployed the pressure builds to the point where a seemingly absurd scheme starts to make sense, but can these amateur abductors pull it off?

Fusing gritty Rio de Janeiro locations with slick, fluid camerawork, Rezende ratchets up the tension, building to a bracing climax while never losing sight of the all-too-real stakes for her crew of troubled souls.
