O Amuleto de Ogum (The Amulet of Ogum)
Ogum is one of the deities of Brazil's many voodoo-related folk religions. This story is narrated by an ubiquitous folk singer and tells of a young boy whose mother arranges for him to have an amulet bearing Ogum's blessings which would make him immune to gunfire. The amulet apparently works, for the boy becomes a member of a mobster's hit-team and then joins with a group of people who resist his original employers. He is betrayed by a woman who, ironically, possesses a similar amulet of her own. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
