On the banks of a sprawling Brazilian river lies Sao Tiago - a small town without a conscience, forsaken by its people and by God - the perfect place for a fallen priest to escape his past. Sam whiles away his time drinking and fishing, but when one bloody night he helps a dying stranger, he feels a change is coming. Soon Sam catches the attention of the dead man's employer, the formidable Catarina Da Silva whose hypnotic gaze he has trouble resisting.
