Inspired by the classic novel by Brazilian cultural icon Jorge Amado, this is the story of a gang of homeless children lead by Pedro Bala. Set in Bahia, the film follows the adventures of Bala's gang of under aged outlaws as they steal, rape, find love, "capoeira" (a Brazilian form of martial arts) and African-Brazilian religion.

The plural "Generals" is most likely incorrect. Have never found advertising other than singular "The Sandpit General". Distributed by AIP under the title "The Wild Pack", with runs in San Francisco in October 1972 and Chicago (January 5, 1973). Under the title "The Sandpit General", opened in Minneapolis November 14, 1975 and not distributed by AIP (perhaps self-distributed by Hall Bartlett
?) Re-titling to "The Defiant" occurred in 1985. See more
