About The Mechanism S2
2014. After presidential elections, Verena’s task force team has arrested 12 of Brazil’s top 13 contractors. In this season, there is still one missing, the biggest of them all: Ricardo Brecht (Emilio Orciollo Netto). Verena (Caroline Abras) and Guilhome (Osvaldo Mil) and Vander (Jonathan Haagensen) remain engaged in their investigations, as well as Ruffo (Selton Mello): the retired deputy is still acting outside of the law and relentless in his pursuit of Ibrahim (Enrique Diaz), getting more estranged from his wife Regina (Susana Ribeiro) and daughter Beta (Julia Svaccina).
