Summary

WARNING!! MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS!!

Coffee Carnival


In 1880's Brazil, there was a constitutional monarchy. Like many other countries at the time, Brazil was planning to become a republic and thus depose the branch of the Portuguese royal family which provided the Brazilian head of state.

This political uncertainty and movements urging emancipation of the slaves had disrupted the public peace. Bands of thieves called Canga-Ceiro took advantage of the situtation.

Count Monteiro, the master of one of the many large, prosperous coffee plantations which ringed São Paulo, had decided to make his son, Antonio, the head of the plantation and return home to Portugal. Antonio was too young to manage the plantation so the Count intended to appoint two trustees of the estate: Julio as manager and Altoul as the family representative. Julio, an Italian immigrant, was competent, but Altoul, a relative of the Count and his daughter Beatrice's fiance, was an alcoholic.

At this time, the ownership of the neighboring plantation passed to Andlade, an aggressive businessman who was determined to take over the Count's estate. Julio ordered two of his most trusted men, Evitacio and Paulo, to follow Andlade's every movement.

Julio had fallen in love with Beatrice at first sight but had concealed his feelings and made great efforts to prove himself worthy of the Count's trust. Beatrice, who had ben disappointed by Altoul's drunkenness, was attracted to Julio. One day, she saw Altoul with a town barmaid and her love for her fiance completely died. At a harvest festival, she joined the dancing workers and boldly sought out Julio. After a passionate dance, they fell into each other's arms and their love blazed to life at once.

Just after Evitacio returned from investigating Andlade, someone murdered Antonio. Altoul, deeply shocked by Antonio's death, pulled himself together. Julio suspected that Andlade had ordered the killing. Altoul and Julio set off to seek revenge.
