Brazil doesn't live under any declared war but many of its young men chose to fight abroad. The film will follow the lives of Brazilians that are engaged in other national armies or mercenary forces. What is there behind this motivation? The desire to “correct” the world; the will to participate in worldwide interest events; the crave for adventure? To understand the contradictions inherent to this choice is surely a difficult task, but is also a way of feeling contemporary Brazil.
