The filmmaking team that stunned viewers with City of God returns with this series about two teenage boys coming of age in the dangerous slums of Rio de Janeiro. Laranjinha (Darlan Cunha) and Acerola (Douglas Silva) are two 13-year-old boys who have made their home in a small shantytown in the mountains of Rio. Though life can be hard in such a volatile environment, their spirits are strong and serve well to help the pair endure even when it seems that all hope is lost.
