Rio Connection Storyline
Rio Connection starts off with Tommaso or Roberto Felice meeting up with Lucien Sarti and Fernand Legros to finalise their deal to transport heroin to the US cartels. What they are essentially doing is buying heroin from other places for comparatively less amounts & then selling it to their client & making exorbitant amounts of money from it. While they always have the perfect plan, things don’t work out as they intend to, as they can never trust the person working with them or when the police might catch them in the act. But by going through all the troubles together, the three form a kind of business partnership that is fail-proof. Yet the question remains if each one is loyal enough to the others. To be precise, Rio Connection shows how Rio (Brazil) become the hub of an international network of organized crime.
