A tale of how crime affects the poor of Rio de Janeiro. Though the narrative skips around in time, the main focus is on Cabeleira who formed a gang called the Tender Trio. He and his best friend, Bené, become crime lords over the course of a decade. When Bené is killed before he can retire, Zé Pequeno (Li'l Zé) attempts to take out his arch enemy, Sando Cenoura (Carrot). But Sando and a young gangster named Manu form an alliance and begin a gang war with Li'l Zé. Amateur photographer Buscapé (Rocket), a good-natured boy who comically learns that he's not cut out to be a hoodlum, takes pictures of the brutal crime war, making their story famous.
Based on the novel by Paulo Lins.
