Raul Julia as "Chico Mendes"

Based on real events, this film recounts the story of Chico Mendes (Raul Julia), a laborer in the Brazilian Amazon who rebels against his employers. Aware that workers are being exploited, Mendes attempts to unionize his compatriots for better wages and conditions.

But Mendes' activism makes him a target.
