About Anjos do Sol

Year Released:
Maria is an illiterate young girl who lives in the interior of northeastern Brazil. She is sold by her fisherman father to be employed as a housemaid for a wealthy businessman and his son. After being purchased, Maria is resold to a brothel located near a gold mining town in the Amazon rainforest. After months suffering with other girls, Maria runs away and hitchhikes across Brazil. When arriving in Rio de Janeiro, prostitution once again haunts her. (DigiBeta Presentation)
