In Brazil in the 1960’s, street urchins who commit petty robberies grow up to become hardcore drug traffickers who kill to stay on top of the game.  Nominated for four Academy Awards and winner of over 65 international film festival & critic awards, this film shows the underbelly of Brazil with organized crime as a way of life and for a chosen few, a life from which to escape to better things.   In Portuguese with English subtitles.
