Ballroom dancers Terri and Rick Hamilton want to be world champions. Set on Florianópolis, off the coast of Brazil, eviscerated bodies wash up on the shores of this beach paradise. It is home not only to urubús, a unique species of black vultures, but also to a group of strange women who offer Terri fame at a terrible price. Rick fears Terri is joining a cult and that his own life is in peril.
