Childhood chums from opposite social echelons take different paths in life but are reunited in jail as adults in this potent Brazilian drama. Looking to combat ghetto violence with an urban-renewal program, utopian politician Miguel (Werner Schünemann) seeks support from his boyhood friend Jorge (Antônio Pompêo) -- an imprisoned drug kingpin who controls a street gang via cell phone. Meanwhile, events outside the pen further entwine their worlds.
