This is a good movie about corruption from Brazil. Named as "rachadinha" (in Brazil) the schema operates from commissioned positions of mayors and councilors who put their allies in positions to take a part of the employees' salaries as a political tithe (dizimo politico). Many famous politicians in Brazil use this practice. In this way, the film deals with a very current theme in the Brazilian political scenario and is very well directed.

Curral is a political drama set in the rural Brazilian city of Gravatá. During the mayoral elections, the population is divided between the Blue and Red parties, two political oligarchies fighting each other for power. A recent severe drought means water is the main bargaining chip when it comes to securing a majority of people's votes. Chico Caixa is a former city employee. He lost his job trying to take water supplies to a poor neighborhood which had been abandoned for political reasons. Caixa is invited by a childhood partner, Joel, to work on his councilor campaign. Joel presents himself as a new alternative to the older candidates, who have been in power for decades. But as the campaign progresses, Chico Caixa soon realizes that breaking apart from the established political game is not always as easy as it may seem.
