Moto Anjos is a gripping and gritty story that authentically portrays the hazardous lives of Brazilian motorbike messengers.

Alex is a resourceful motoboy who cheats death daily on the most dangerous streets in the world. One day his close friend is killed by a reckless motorist. Alex seeks justice, but the rich and connected hit-and-run driver subverts justice, and stymies Alex’s efforts.
With help from his newfound love, Lillian, a young engineer at the Traffic Command Center, Alex closes in on the reckless driver. But when his search for justice turns into a thirst for revenge, it puts him and everyone he cares for in danger.
Alex uses cunning and resolve to save his life and the lives of those close to him, but at great personal sacrifice.
