A few years from now: Bacurau, a small village in the Brazilian sertão, mourns the loss of its matriarch, Carmelita, who lived to be 94. Days later, its inhabitants (among them celebrated actress Sônia Braga) notice that their village has vanished off the maps and that a UFO-shaped drone is flying overhead. There are forces that want to expel them from their homes, and soon in a genre-bending twist, a band of armed mercenaries led by Udo Kier, arrive in town picking off the inhabitants one by one. A fierce confrontation takes place when the townspeople turn the tables on the villainous outsiders, banding together by any means necessary to protect and maintain their remote community.
