My ratings 7.0/10
The street children in Sao Paulo is the focus of this story and hopefully their lives have become better since the release of the film. Reality can be very grim.

My favourite quotes from the film:
Some business requires a little cheating

My impressions:

Can change ever be expected
When born into such conditions
Poor, unwanted, discriminated
Always the suspect

Even if given a chance
To improve
What are the odds of success

Circumstances dictate
The survival of the fittest
Or the most wily, cunning

Some follow
Some become leaders

To each a journey
To what end
No one knows
