PEONS HIRED:

WAITING FOR THIRD ILLITERATE

CLAUDIO AND LEONARDO

We went to good schools.

That's it!

But we traded it all

for life in the wild.

RONCADOR - XINGU EXPEDITION

VANGUARD:

Colo!

Time to move!

OK, let's go.

We're losing time. Put out the fire.

We always knew

we could only be really free...

- It's the tributary of Xingu River.

- In the great outdoors.

Go suck the devil's blood in hell.

And you too, you little prick.

Not even dad's farm

had so many ticks.

Listen.

Is it a jaguar?

That's no jaguar.

It's Indians.

Shit!

- Shit.

- Calm down, everybody OK?

- Lower your gun, damn it.

- Shit!

- Put this out.

- Check the mules.

Put out the fire.

Put it out, put it out!

They're going to kill us.

But we can't kill them back.

Colo? Colo, look at this.

Look at this club, man.

Mr. Claudio, more than 20 Indians

came this way.

Let's get out of here, Colo.

We can go back from here.

- Calm down!

- Let's go back.

Take it easy, Leonardo, calm down.

It's the Indians.

Something's strange.

What's all this smoke here?

There's smoke here, Colo.

- Here too!

- They're surrounding us.

- They want to cook us alive.

- Lower your gun!

Get down.

Shoot into the air. Into the air.

Let's get off their land.

- Good idea!

- Let's go.

Break camp.

Let's go, guys.

Let's get out of here!

What the government called

unoccupied land...

in reality, had owners.

Orlando?

A fish trap.

XINGU RIVER:

Orlando?

Look, over there.

Hide your guns. Indians.

Lower your gun.

Take it easy.

Claudio, there's too many.

There's more over there, look.

On the left.

Leonardo.

Row.

Let's go, let's get out of here.

Go!

Shit, he's going to shoot!

- Leonardo, calm down!

- Calm down, Leonardo.

- Go to the other side.

Shit, row!

What are going to do here?

- Wait.

- Wait for what?

Nothing, just wait.

You're all crazy,

let's go, let's get out of here.

- Let's go.

- Leonardo! Take it easy!

We're going to have to talk to them

sooner or later.

We can't keep running

from them forever.
