Cinderellas of the Slums

Secrets of South America Episode 3 of 3

In the last of three programmes revealing what it's like to be young in South America, Billie JD Porter travels to Brazil to explore the glitz and glamour of 15th birthday debutante balls. In Brazil's booming economy, some parents are spending more than £100,000 on their daughter's special day. But in a country with a huge gap between rich and poor, not everyone is invited to the party. Billie teams up with two modern-day 'Cinderellas' who are hoping their dreams of making it to the ball will come true.
