In the very near future, Teresa (Bárbara Colen) returns home to the small town Bacurau in the middle of nowhere because her grandmother, the family matriarch passed away. But when she gets there, she realizes that Bacurau is at the heart of a series of strange events – and the town and its inhabitants are in danger. But they are neither willing to go down without a fight, nor are they helpless.

Bacurau is a thoroughly entertaining film with strong politics that was simply a joy to watch. As it takes you from twist to turn, it’s best to just go with the flow and you will have one hell of a time.
