In 1942, a German man goes to the North East of Brazil to sell aspirin. Johann fled Germany to escape the war and has been driving around the outbacks of Brazil for months. When he reaches a town, he sets up a movie projector and shows commercials for the revolutionary new medicine he's peddling: aspirin. After the show, the locals flock to buy the stuff. While in a larger town, he is served notice that he must either return to Germany or surrender himself to a concentration camp in Sao Paulo. In the end, he finds he must chase down his destiny.
