A young Brazilian girl has been evicted from a local slum along with her entire family. She delivers pizzas by motorbike to support them. By chance she encounters the man who evicted them, and faces a choice between forgiveness or revenge.
The film was shot in São Paulo and São José dos Campos, Brazil.
Actor Sandro Battista in action
This film dramatizes the issues of corruption versus transparency in the secrets each character holds.
It deals with justice versus revenge in the choices each character makes.
It shows the hard choices a motorcycle courier must face when confronted with the limited employment opportunities of her profession and her class.
The story and film pre-dates the recent protests on the streets of Brazil. We want to shed some light on the thorny problems a country faces that is struggling to grow in a time of great change amidst systematic corruption and injustice.
The past can be a major impediment to growth and democracy. We live in a time when reconciliation is a hot news topic, when punitive sentencing of government corruption is fiercely debated, and when the lower classes are on the razor’s edge between violence and comfort. We need a wide and healthy debate about our identity and how we can move to a better future without regressing into the turmoil and troubles of the past.
We hope this short film will ignite a broader and deeper discussion, and lead us into a future of economic, social and moral equilibrium.
Joe helps Sil's aim: "It's in the wrist."
