Synopsis

2029. Thirteen years after a coup in Brazil, electronic anklets are placed in poor, black and slum children, and their lives are tracked by the assumption that they will sooner or later go to the crime. Chico is another one of those children. On his birthday, the law of preventive rehabilitation is approved and the arrest of these minors is authorized. A painful separation between Chico and his mother, Nazareth, will end the party mood.
