Description: Two men plotting a murder discover their partner in crime wants more out of the deal than they expected. Ivan (Alexandre Borges) and Gilberto (Marco Ricca) were partners with their friend Estevao (Malu Mader) in a construction company that the three founded shortly after graduating from engineering school. While the business had been successful for some time, some irregularities in the books became evident, and Estevao, who owns controlling interest in the company, decides that they should eliminate their partnership and go their separate ways. Ivan and Gilberto aren't at all interested in shutting down the business, and they decide to hire a hit man to take their former friend out of the picture so they can gain full control of the company. Anisio (Paulo Miklos), the hit man, is more than willing to do the job, but afterward, he isn't so interested in going away. A poor man in a town where class means a great deal, Anisio sees Ivan and Gilberto as possible stepping stones to a better social station and a more comfortable life, and the two businessmen begin to wonder if they've made a mistake. The web becomes all the more tangled when Anisio begins dating Estevao's daughter. The Trespasser won the Latin American Cinema Award after its screening at the 2002 Sundance Film Festival.~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
