About this product
- DescriptionAlexandre Barbosa is the scion of a wealthy Brazilian family that lives grandly and gambles for high stakes. His father has just lost the family's vast coffee plantation in a poker game. But the loss of his patrimony isn't Alexandre's most serious problem. He feels hor-bound, even at the risk of his life, to take an active part in opposing the military dictatorship that has ruled Brazil for five years. His patriotism comes into conflict with everything he has planned for his future. In 1969, while still a university student in Rio de Janeiro studying to become an architect, he joins the Armed Resistance. As the result of their militant activities, he and his lover Monica, a fellow architecture student, jeopardize their careers and their commitments to each other as their lives take dangerous and surprising turns in Brazil, Chile and the United States.
