Written by Chris Thorpe.
Corrupt ex-cop Marcelo (Charles Paraventi) keeps pregnant teenager Liza (Julia Bernat) in his apartment. Rafael (Matheus Oliveira) an idealistic street-kid wants to rescue her and take her far away.
Set in one of Rio de Janeiro's most crowded favelas, this ambitious ensemble drama by Chris Thorpe is part love-story and part thriller revolving around a single day in the lives of a couple of thieves, a crooked policeman, a charity worker, a priest, a blind revolutionary and a pregnant teenager.
Recorded in Brazil, it was made with the help of the Nós do Morro theatre in Vidigal, Rio de Janeiro.
