|Maiquel (played by Murilo Benicio) is
THE MAN OF THE YEAR, who has lost a bet and dyed his hair blond.
This little event triggers a head-on collision with destiny in which Maiquel
goes from nobody to hero, then to outlaw -- all in 24 hours -- and Benicio
is brilliant as Maiquel, a quiet, middle-class loser -- vain, smug, angry,
brooding, thoughtful, remorseful, duped, and with a special fondness for
a baby pig handed to him as a gift. The many twists and turns
of fate cause his life to take on dimensions similar to a Greek tragedy.
Maiquel struggles with two jealous women, life-long friendships and, along
with his new job as a hit-man, he has more than enough to keep him brooding,
on edge, questioning his actions, his fate.
