From Executive Producer Fernando Meirelles ('City of God'), Alexandre Moratto’s Powerful debut presents a refreshing portrait of youth in Brazil.
Socrates (a superb Christian Malheiros), a handsome 15-year-old, lives with his mother in São Palo. When she suddenly dies, his entire way of life is threatened. Fighting an estranged father for his mother’s ashes and a social services department that will place him in a care home if a guardian can’t be found for him, Socrates decides to take charge of his life. As a result, he meets Maicon (Tales Ordakji), who might offer a beacon of hope
