LOGLINE: A gay futebol (soccer) superstar gives in to his drive to love, truly, once he finds his perfect match.
Battling corrupt Brasilian cops, death threats, his profession and his fans, he makes a tragic mistake that costs him everything--- including his spot as captain of the Brasilian national team… and the, first and only, love of his life.
Full Treatment on request, vetting and signed NDA.
Approximate scope: Maurice, meets Brokeback Mountain, meets Elite Squad II, meets Deathtrap and lifestyles of the rich and famous.
"Luz do Sol" ("Sunlight") is a sexy, luxurious, gay romance thriller set in the wealthy and diverse "Zona Sul" ("South Zone"- comprised of Leblon, Ipanema, Copacabana districts and others), the poorest favelas, yacht and country clubs of Rio de Janeiro, Brasil--- where penthouse culture meets the hard, dangerous streets of Rio and the marble-floored offices of the powerful Brasilian elite.
When a national celebrity, billionaire, athlete falls in love with an American, best-selling writer and librettist, his secret personal orientation becomes public knowledge in the country--- and worldwide. His love for the American is strong... and deeply requited.
How can he love honestly, when it could well destroy his career, his fortune, his national stature as a hero and possibly end his life in the offing?
Constructed on a mélange of secrecy, dirty cops, sadistic, hate-fueled murder, cover-ups, brutality, survival and devotion to the art of being in a durable and significant and loving relationship with your perfect mate after a lifetime of searching --- despite all the many risks, dangers and threats from every corner.
Samba, Carnaval, upscale living and a new-found love that is entirely hopeless... or is it?
