It then flashes back to 1566, when Abeguar is seen chasing a puma. He’s soon joined by the insufficiently clad Janaina (Camila Pitanga), with the two in the end making a urgent escape from the charging creature by hopping off a monstrous bluff. A shaman advises Abeguar that his survival implies that he has been supernaturally driven his kin against malevolence, represented by a shape-moving evil presence named Anhanga.
At the point when Abeguar bites the dust in the wake of driving the battle against the severe Portuguese pilgrims who have colonized the locale, he is changed into a feathered creature. As the film continues to delineate a few turbulent verifiable periods in what in the long run gets to be Rio de Janeiro, his association with Janaina proceeds even as they each thought on various structures.
