Charting the misadventures of expatriates in Rio and their bungled search for both personal pleasure and social justice, the film is a deliriously insolent romp that explores the bizarre contradictions that are a fact of daily life in this pulsing metropolis. A plastic surgeon arrives in Rio, the new US ambassador to Brazil slips his guards and disappears into Rio's infamous favelas, and a French couple arrive to make a film.
