Elite Squad: The Enemy Within (Tropa de Elite - O Inimigo Agora E Outro)

The sprawling slum that towers over Rio de Janeiro is one of the most dangerous places on Earth, and as the head of Rio's BOPE, Captain Nascimento has seen his share of intense situations. When a BOPE mission to stop a jail riot ends in violence, Nascimento finds his job on the line. The public that is fed up with the violence and gangs that plague Rio, embrace Nascimento as a hero. With elections around the corner, he's promoted to Sub-Secretary of Intelligence. In his powerful new post, Nascimento strengthens BOPE and brings the drug gangs that rule the slum to their knees- only to come to the sobering realization that by doing so, he's made things easier for the corrupt cops and dirty politicians who are truly running the game.
