Besouro is an epic martial arts, action packed film set in the 1920s in the most Afro-rich region of Brazil: Bahia. Despite the nominal abolition of slavery, wealthy white landowners continued to exploit black workers like slaves. Besouro is the story of a courageous man turned legend – the greatest Capoeira fighter of all time whose magical powers allow him to fly and make his body virtually impenetrable.
