It’s summer, they’re on summer break, but they can’t go to the beach. Living in one of the most dangerous favelas in Rio, they are close, but at the same time far from the sea – located in the city’s upscale neighbourhoods where the poor are not welcome. So a group of children fills the day
with a journey of games – a mirror of dreams, fears and the violence that surrounds them.
