Edgar is arrested for killing a woman and child in a car crash, but is bailed out by state representative Jader Kerleis. After two years on vacation in Miami, Florida, Edgar returns to the city of São Paulo with a plot to pit Jader, infamous for multiple corruption cases, against Maicon, a criminal notorious for bribing influential politicians to keep him free, to bring both of them to justice.
Tango Pictures bought the rights to remake this film with a title Two Rabbits. The film will be the second project for the development of new production, directed by Andrew Lazar, Christina Lurie and Steven Shainberg. Afonso Poyart says it should take the executive production, but not the direction. Poyart said, "The idea is to make another movie. At the moment, the Tango is hiring writers that will give a new treatment history and acclimation to the American public". The budget of the film should cost between $10 million and 12 million.
