Kid wants to live without work. Or whatever. The script does not bother with the characters' past. There is the sexual woman. And the old man who wants to see his family. And the bad guys. Everything is stock or stereotype. In the end the movie fails because the characters seems only excuses to march the dubious mix of christian and marxist values of the script. And yes, it seems there are proletarians even among criminals.
