It’s 2016 and a struggling young orphaned couple from Rio’s favelas have set up an internet cafe called Cafe Caipirinha. But things are not going well; the cafe is in a poor state, the bills are mounting and customers are few and far between. 

Then, Guilherme sees a Facebook Ad for Payback, a daytime TV show far away in England. The show tracks down errant fathers and pays the injured party generous compensation. It’s all part of a scheme to privatise paternity claim settlements, as the government of the day fails to cope with the legal aid bill generated by the scandals of 2012/13.

This may just be the answer to fatherless Guilherme’s prayers. But sadly for Guilherme, he appears to be just the right material for the cynical and manipulative host, Matt Mathews, and the show’s diving ratings.

Lambs to the slaughter? Maybe not! 

This highly topical and satirical show is fresh, original and funny and has foot tapping songs you'll be singing the morning after.
