Documentary film synopsis:
The rivalry of Brazil’s drug lords in the impoverished slums, known as favelas, have kept the country’s peripheral urban neighborhoods in a constant state of war. In 2008 alone, Rio de Janeiro lost over 1,000 youth under the age of 24 to violent death, many on public streets, and the drug lords wield such power that they have been known to burn buses in retaliation against the police, bringing public transportation to a halt. Out of the deeply troubled favela Vila Alianca in Rio comes the story of three adolescents trying to escape the captivating allure of the drug trade, with the help of their mentor Samuel Muniz de Araujo, or Samuca, who was once one of the most wanted criminals in the city. After serving almost ten years in the brutal Brazilian penitentiary system for kidnapping, Samuca has turned his life around to become a community leader, educator and social entrepreneur, with a god-given vision to emancipate the kids enslaved to the drug lords, and bring the plight of the favelas to the rest of the world. This feature-length documentary follows the riveting story of how Samuca strives to save young adults from the slum where he lives by teaching them to become musicians, visual artists, and entrepreneurs, at the school he founded. Over the course of one year, we follow the journey of these kids and their mentor, as they overcome the challenges of brutal street life to produce a powerful musical and artistic expression about a community rarely seen on film with such intimacy and unflinching truth.
