Oliver an eleven-year-old boy is thrown away from his house by his stepfather. His mother watches everything and does nothing, afraid of being hurt. Since this moment, Oliver lives in the streets where he meets other kids that, for different reasons, came to the same place as him. With no other choice, he joins "the gang" to find food and other things to survive: a shelter under a bridge to sleep and the glue that makes him forget.

User Reviews

this movie must be in the top 250
11 June 2005 | by d4rk3v1LSee all my reviews

this movie should be in the top 250, since, no Venezuelan movie has been (and let us hope it is), in the top, since our movies show the reality of every day that we live the Venezuelans with regard to the delinquency, especially in the poor areas of Caracas, well-known as "barrios" or "cerros" where the life there is like underworld, in other words, it is ANOTHER WORLD.

Cities so modern as Caracas, always have their dangerous parts, like in New York it is the Bronk, here it is Petare, Catia, Caricuao and many other areas that present great danger for the inhabitants of the region. Here we are invaded of: Indigenous, Vague, criminals, thieves, assassins, drug dealers, prostitutes, etc. in short, and that reality is exporting since this it is not only given here, but in all Latin America. My intention with this comment is that they vote that the movie you of to know more, I rush (not the first stone, but it is a beginning), and I vote 9/10.

P.D. IMDb users, vote for this one, we just only need many votes, go
