Synopsis This poignant film is the story of two men: white, middleclass Miguel, and black favela-dweller Jorge who meet as boys through their fathers' passion for music. Their friendship is renewed during a lengthy incarceration in the mid 1970's. Director Lúcia Murat offers a commentary on the lowest rung of society in contemporary Rio de Janeiro when, as adults, Miguel and Jorge, one a government official and the other a drug lord, respectively, discover that their lives have more in common than they ever realized.
