23 Degrees South follows two 23 year-old childhood pals, Hart and Simon, on a twisting, unexpected, adventure of force-fed, self-discovery. The story departs from the tennis courts of Southern California traveling to the back streets of Sao Paulo, through the treacherous jungles of Brazil, then back again. Meet an eclectic collection of characters from a Capoeira Master, to a Jesuit Priest, and a geriatric Nazi, who all weave their way in, out, and around the path of our two heroes.
