Detective Bechara Jahlk is Brazil’s first private eye and became a celebrity as early as 1957, when he solved a mysterious kidnapping case widely covered by the media. He has since specialised in “corporate crime”. To solve cases he uses the skills of three investigative agents, Natasha, Julia and Tania. They infiltrate their « target » with « Alias » or « M:I » high spying technology. In ANGELS OF RIO, Bechara’s agents investigate a case that starts with drug trafficking and leads us to approach other realities of the Brazilian society, from the favela world to the dark side of the country political history. They will be filmed as they unfold their investigation in front of our camera.
