The documentary starts from the religious conflicts existing in Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte's slums and outskirts to analyze the growing conservative wave taking over the country. The film shows how the unrestrained growth of evangelical churches and their relationship with drug traffickers who run the slums has led to an imbalance of forces, resulting in numerous cases of religious intolerance. Faith and Fury addresses the behavior of “evangelical traffickers” and reveals how religion and power go together in the fringes of large Brazilian cities.
