How vicious life is...and, it simply goes on...kids who have absolutely nothing...but rape and abuse...

This is cruelty...and, staggering inhumanity.

Are we not human? Babenco asks...not according to this.

Our failures, as a society, as parents...to have the children as the victims and their need and/or intuition to survive. This is horrifyingly basic.

Where friendship is the only thing they have - that matters.

An indictment on us all, now, and later.

Powerful & harsh.

Important. Difficult. Disturbing. Brilliant.


The(ir) Blurb...

Pixote, a 10-year-old runaway boy, is arrested on the streets of Sao Paulo during a police round-up homeless people. Pixote endures torture, degradation and corruption at a local youth detention center where two of the runaways are murdered by policemen who frame Lilica, a 17-year-old transvesite hustler. Pixote helps Lilica and three other boys escape where they make their living by the life of crime which only escalates to more violence and death.
