After his mother’s sudden death, Socrates, a teenager living on the margins of São Paulo’s coast, must learn how to stand on his own feet without a survival guide. Made by a crew of 16- to 20-year-olds with the minimum budget possible and produced by American director Ramin Bahrani, this deeply personal film becomes a weapon in the struggle for social inclusion and at the same time a proof of the power of cinema to transform reality.
