A penetrating, no-holds-barred video film in three parts about the crime that dominates and destroys Brazilian society. Part 1 shows four young thieves and drug dealers from the favela in Rio de Janeiro, who try to justify their lives as gangsters. In part 2, two Brazilian policemen talk about their 'moonlighting', including hit jobs. Part 3 is about a Brazilian evangelist who has given up his vocation to lead a life of crime. Olivier Zabat (1965, Grenoble) lives and works in Paris.
