Overview

Wracked with guilt for causing the death of a Brazilian man during a routine procedure gone horribly awry, a bigoted, former New York City immigration officer travels to Brazil to atone for his crime in this confrontational drama from director Josse Joffily. When JFK Airport Chief Immigration Officer Marshall (David Rasche) is forced to into compulsory retirement, has one too many drinks during his last day on the job, and allows his prejudice to overshadow his better judgment while questioning a group of visitors from Latin America. As a result, an innocent Brazilian dies, and Marshall is sent to prison. Released from prison years later, Marshall bears the full weight of responsibility for his actions, and seeks to set things right in the eyes of his victim's daughter. Upon arriving in Brazil, he meets a young woman named Bia (Cristina Lago), who agrees to help him locate the girl. Though redemption may not come easy for Marshall, he vows to see his mission through no matter what the cost.
