Synopsis:
In 1980, impoverished working-class child actor Fernando Ramos da Silva was chosen from 1300 other boys to play the lead role in Hector Babenco's Pixote, a film that showed the plight of Rio de Janerio's street urchins forced into criminal lives. The film earned great acclaim and Ramos da Silva received fame and fortune. Unfortunately, fate and the rigidity of Brazil's social system had other, more tragic plans. This biopic tells his sorrowful tale and follows the grim sequence of events that led to his brutal, controversial murder by the police.
