The film centres on two estranged brothers who were split after their parents were murdered 35 years ago. Matias (Raul Rosario) was six years old, and Dias (Paulo Americano) was still in his mother's womb. Matias was fortunate and was adopted by a well-off family, who gave him a stable and loving upbringing. Dias was less fortunate and was in and out of orphanages and troubled most of his life.
Both brothers decided to serve their country, Matias now a general in the military, and Dias a commander of the DNIC, a special unit of the Angolan police force.
When the two brothers are forced to work together to take down a major drug operation, they discover the man behind the drug empire is Ferreira (Rapulana Seiphemo), the same man that murdered their parents all those years ago.
