A great portrayal of life that kids living in the poorest conditions in Brazil have.
The film follows a story of two boys, who are stuck between two choices – to continue farming which really consists of having a little field and couple of farm animals to tend after or try to make it to the bigger world at the local gas station where they help out often just for small coins or some food. Often, they go hungry all day and just end up stealing leftovers at the gas station's fast food place.
The boys' biggest focus is to stay away from drugs and live a normal life making money to support themselves, while at the same time battling mood swings which often bring out the question of suicide. When you consider the boys being less than 15 years old, those are some tough thoughts to have and decisions to make at that age..
