Gustavo Machado plays Henrique, an arrogant hotshot photographer in Rio de Janeiro. One eventful night, following a photo shoot in the city’s suburbs, his camera is stolen in an attempted carjacking. Five seconds later, he watches both get hit by a pickup truck driven by a self-appointed avenger.  

A crowd gathers and a traumatized Henrique speeds away, but returns soon afterwards to retrieve his camera memory card, only to be arrested for leaving the scene of the crime. From that moment, he is trapped in a situation where he doesn’t know whether he is victim, witness or accomplice. 

Based on true events.
