Justiça (English title: Above Justice) is a 2016 Brazilian miniseries created by Manuela Dias and that was aired by Rede Globo from 22 August to 23 September 2016 at 11 pm.[1] It was written by Manuela Dias, co-written by Mariana Mesquita, Lucas Paraizo and Roberto Vitorino, and it was directed by Isabella Teixeira, Luísa Lima, Marcus Figueiredo and Walter Carvalho, with general and artistic direction by José Luiz Villamarim.[2]

Set both initially in 2009 and then in 2016 in Recife, each weekly episode follows one of four different set of characters whose stories are interconnected. It stars Adriana Esteves, Julia Dalavia, Marina Ruy Barbosa, Drica Moraes, Antonio Calloni, Cássio Gabus Mendes, Cauã Reymond, Marjorie Estiano, Luisa Arraes, Jéssica Ellen, Jesuíta Barbosa and Débora Bloch at the main roles.[3][4]

In Brazil, Justiça was received well by viewers and critics alike. The show had a daily reach of approximately 41 million viewers and a total reach of approximately 134 million viewers. The first four episodes were made available on Globoplay before the miniseries premiered on network television.

In 2017, the series was nominated for 45th International Emmy Awards in the best drama series categories and best actress for Adriana Esteves


Justiça was shot in Recife, capital of Pernambuco, in an effort by Rede Globo to set some of its works outside of the Rio-São Paulo axis. According to the director, Recife was chosen due to its economic inequality being greater than the rest of the country, which gives the series more veracity. To Villamarim, "Recife is a synthesis of Brazil".[5][6][7] In the municipality, Pina Beach, Boa Viagem Beach, Teatro de Santa Isabel, Palácio do Campo das Princesas, Mercado de São José and the Holiday Building were used as filming locations. In Olinda, some streets were used as location such as Ladeira da Misericórdia, among others, as well as Largo do Amparo. In Jaboatão dos Guararapes, the Barra de Jangada Beach was used.[8][9] The way the story is told, interconnecting four different stories, was already used in movies such as Short Cuts, Crash and Babel.[10] The cast preparation was done by Chico Accioly and rabbi Nilton Bonder.[11][12]


The miniseries tells a story in each day of the week, in which a search for justice takes place.

Monday (Vicente Menezes)[edit]

Elisa (Débora Bloch) can't overcome the death of her daughter, Isabela (Marina Ruy Barbosa), murdered in 2009 by her own fiancée Vicente (Jesuíta Barbosa) when he caught her cheating on him with an ex-boyfriend. After being released from prison in current time, he seeks forgiveness by his mother-in-law as he starts a new life with Regina (Camila Márdila) and their daughter.

Tuesday (Fátima Libéria do Nascimento)[edit]

Fátima (Adriana Esteves), a maid at Elisa's house, killed a dog belonging to police sergeant Douglas (Enrique Díaz) in 2009 after it hurt her son. She is subsequently incriminated for drug trafficking after Douglas plants some cocaine at her house. Seven years later, when she is released, she wants to reunite with her family, but her husband Waldir (Ângelo Antônio) died, her son Jesus (Bernardo Berruezo/Tobias Carrieres) is homeless and her daughter Mayara (Letícia Braga/Julia Dalavia) became a prostitute.

Thursday (Rose Silva dos Santos)[edit]

Friday (Maurício de Oliveira)[edit]

In 2009, Mauricio (Cauã Reymond) was arrested for killing his wife Beatriz (Marjorie Estiano) at her own request after a hit and run leaves her quadriplegic.

Marcelo goes after her and learns about the incident at her school and her dismissal. When he returns home, he finds Débora's blood-covered clothes, and they lead him to a note with directions to Osvaldo's body. There, he finds another note, in which Débora tells her rape story, admits her murder and says "it was not revenge, but justice". She is seen hitchhiking by a highway. Marcelo gets rid of the note. Lucy is sent to cover the finding of Osvaldo's body and cries as she spots the pendant she had given Débora in a previous episode. Later, at the Snack Night Club, Celso and Rose prepare to move to another place and have a brief talk with Mauricio. Later, at the club's parking lot, Mauricio is hurt on an attempt on his life, frustrated by Celso's guards.
20"Mauricio 5"23 September 2016 (2016-09-23)25.7[54]
Mauricio watches a video of Beatriz dancing. Kellen pays Celso a final visit, collects her things and distributes some of her own clothes to her prostitutes as goodbye gifts. Later, she goes to Celso's apartment and finds some of the money Mauricio raised, which she later shows Douglas as seen in episode 18. Celso is infuriated when he learns about her robbery but Mauricio says she's earned the money for her work at the nightclub. Mauricio tells Vânia he's going to leave town without her. She accuses him of using her, and he replies explaining they both wanted to end Antenor, and they got it done. Antenor tries to have lunch at a restaurant, but is forced to leave after Sara and many other customers protest against him. Later, Téo finds out where Vânia is hiding and Antenor goes confront her at her hotel room. They have an argument, and she self-defenestates to her death. At her funeral, Antenor tells the press she had found out about another woman he had, which led to her betrayal and her suicide. As he leaves the cemetery, he is arrested as the hotel CCTV has caught him leaving the place soon after Vânia's death, making him a murder suspect. Téo tells the press he feels betrayed and that he intends to enter politics in the future to right his father's wrongs. Mauricio and Celso watch the news and celebrate. Later, he goes see Antenor in prison and finally reveals himself as the husband of the woman Antenor had hit-and-ran seven years before. Antenor sarcastically tells him he didn't kill Vânia, but Mauricio did kill Beatriz. Mauricio replies that justice is ironic and that Antenor, having committed countless crimes, was arrested for the one he didn't commit. Later, Mauricio suffers an attempt on his life, as shown in the previous episode. By his hospital bed, Celso says they can catch Antenor again. A TV news program airs the video of Antenor being expelled from the restaurant and Mauricio says life will take care of him. He drives away from the city and stops to Débora as she hitchhkes. The final scene shows a newspaper being printed with headlines that say: "Candidate Antenor Ferraz is arrested, but his son announces candidacy"; "Accident kills driver at intersection" (referring to Vicente's death); "Sex tourism raises in the city" (with a picture of Mayara with a client); and "Raper's body is found at abandoned house" (referring to Osvaldo's death).
