Director Walter Salles' drama weaves elements of magical realism into an often brutal tale of a blood feud taken to extremes. Set in 1910, in a remote part of Brazil, there has been a continuing, yet strangely honourable series of tit-for-tat killings between the Brevese and Ferreiras clans over a piece of land. Once Tonio kills one of the Ferreiras, he becomes a marked man and, though expected to accept his fate, begins to question the slaughter, especially as it will consign his younger brother to a similar fate - doubts that grow after he falls in love with a beautiful circus performer.
A retired teacher makes a living writing letters for people who can't read or write. Her life is turned upside down with the arrival of a young boy.
