The new production by VIS, a division of ViacomCBS, in association with La Casa de Cinema in Porto Alegre, is a comedy written by Guel Arraes, directed by Jorge Furtado and starring Katiuscia Canoro, Rafael Infante and Cauê Campos.
The film tells the story of Kelson, a young car and motorcycle thief, who uses his motorcycle to escape the police and win over his love, Neide. The problem is that, to escape the chases, Kelson needs a more powerful motorcycle, and ends up acquiring from Fernando, a scammer, the motorcycle that belonged to a dangerous bandit, Brasilite.
When Brasilite gets out of jail, he wants to get his bike back, so Kelson will need the help of his sister Rebeca and Marcia, a lawyer, to escape Brasilite’s fury. An adventure full of humor and many surprises, through the labyrinths of the law.
