In the north-east of Brasil the "fazendas" look for workers to knock down hectares of Amazon forest. For this purpose they use a foreman called "the cat". Those who follow the cat will not find the promised money but a debt which cannot be paid off and a contemporary form of slavery. The documentary is a tale and a journey amid the exploiters (Brasilian and multinational companies) the exploited ones and those who fight.
