In this feminine French Hangover-style misadventure, four childhood friends reunite for a wedding, only for everything to go to hell in outrageous and violent ways. Agathe, Lily, and Chloe are going through the motions of young adulthood: meek schoolteacher Agathe is the responsible one, her younger sister Lily has a temper, and Chloe is a sous chef going through a crummy break-up. Out of nowhere, they hear that estranged friend Katia, who now lives in Brazil, is seven months pregnant, and has invited them to her impending nuptials. Although the three have a checkered past with the bride-to-be—a business venture collapsed when Katia "ditched us"—they can't say no to the free destination wedding, and they arrive in Rio ready to tear up the town and forget about their troubles back home. But while carousing at a rollicking party, Lily defends herself from being assaulted by a man high on ecstasy, kicking him off a balcony to his death many stories below. The four soon run afoul of the "Meat King," who will stop at nothing to avenge his heir's death. A wild and funny travelogue through the nightclubs, slums, and jungles of Brazil, Going to Brazil is a tense and exciting story of sisterhood in the face of insanity.
