Inhaltsangabe & Details
Liberdade, São Paulo: a multiethnic neighborhood with the largest Japanese immigrant community in the world. Here, traditional Japanese architecture clashes with the gritty urban landscapes, while people of all races come here to do business – legal or illegal. Yuda, a fearful Chinese outlaw, and his adopted son Kirin, an impulsive young dreamer, together rule the pirated goods racket in the ultra-liberal Brazilian metropolis. The magnate and his heir control all of Liberdade, from rival gangs to street hawkers, from corrupt politicians to erotic dancers. But an empire that takes years to build can also crumble to the ground with one fatal mistake... A conspiracy between politicians and the mafia begins to threaten Yuda’s power. Little by little, he loses control of his business and is ultimately arrested. Kirin struggles to re-conquer his father’s honor, fighting this city’s wars single-handedly. But Yuda, tired of the bloodshed and feeling the weight of his years, abandons his son, falsifies his own death and returns to the jungle in a last attempt to put an end to his criminal life. Escaping from a complex maze of violence, Kirin sets out to find his father. In the mysterious jungle, father and son both have to wipe the slate of their past clean. Only in the end will Kirin discover the ultimate answer to the search for his own destiny.
