In 1920’s Brazil, an extraordinary social movement took place, the “Prestes Column” march, led by Luís Carlos Prestes, in which thousands of people, mostly military, traveled 9.000 kilometers in the hinterland, challenging the central government and seeking to raise the country against the status quo. After Prestes, led by fate to the faltering ranks of federal troops, follows the young sergeant Coracy, a character tormented by the circumstances that carry him away from home, where a stepbrother wants not only his inheritance, but also Eugenia, the love of his life. In his epic journey, the sergeant crosses icons of Brazilian history, as Marechal Rondom, explorer and defender of Indians, the bloodthirsty legendary bandit Lampião and Prestes himself, who is arrested by Coracy. As a critic stated, “a romantic stroll through the history of Brazil.”
