Mandrake

Synopsis

Mandrake is a street-smart lawyer from Rio known for helping rich people in dire straits getting their affairs in order, eventually resorting to blackmail and other questionable means. The lawyer Mandrake is also a famous womanizer, dating several girls concomitantly and splurging in expensive wines and cigars.
Faced with personal and career problems, Mandrake loses himself amid the nightly pleasures, and his partner, Wexler, grows increasingly tired of his attitude. But his luck may change when a complicated case comes up, referred from a young lawyer whom Mandrake had helped in the past. The two specials show Mandrake’s saga. He’ll need all of his expertise to unravel a murder mystery, all the while juggling between lovers from the past such as the lovely Bebel and the hot Amparo.
