Rafael The Pirate
In the gold mining town of Ouro Preto in the center of the new country, Brasil, Rafael, a young fearful, disillusioned orphan, nearly starving, is taken under the care of a benevolent Padre. He gives him shelter and enrolls him in the Catholic school. Lacking language skills, Rafael learns Portuguese from his new mentor. The years pass and Rafael grows physically and intellectually. He has a plan.
