Nego Bala, was born and raised in Boca do Lixo, São Paulo’s roughest neighbourhood.
From his reality, there was no much more opportunities.
This film is based on real facts from his life, who, at age 11, wrote the lyrics for the song “Sonho” during his first time at a juvenile detention center.
The oppressive penitentiary system take out from kids the right of dreaming.
But there's no cage for talent.
There are no bars for imagination.
"To dream is to look inward. To learn is to remember. There's no sorrow in my tears today. There's no hate in my tears anymore. Joy and inspiration."
May this story inspire other kids to never give up on their dreams.
