Pic gets off to a snappy start as a couple of ex-dealers are persuaded by an old-timer (played by film director Nelson Pereira Dos Santos) to smuggle a large stash of cocaine across the border from Colombia. But the young couriers are betrayed, and the survivors — who tell their story to a courageous investigative journalist — vow revenge on the crimelords, who are powerful men in the media and the police force. Marcello Antony is a charismatic hero, while sultry Barbara Schulz is pleasant company as a French girl along on the increasingly dangerous and suspenseful ride.
