Rae Dawn Chong stars as J.J., a hungry journalist looking for that one big story. She thinks she has found it in a series of murders of Brazilian street kids in a favela run by the crimelord, Boca. The aura of Rio during Carnival and the infectious charisma of Boca infatuate our heroine. How much is she willing to risk to get her story, and how much clothing is she willing to take off for Zalman King. (spoiler alert: everything).
