Recife, Brazil. When the inhabitants of a city block experience a spate of burglaries that lead them to call in private security contractors, the knock-on effects are unexpected.


Superbly judging tonal shifts and juggling disparate storylines, this snapshot of a Refice street reveals the class, gender, racial and historical fissures in Brazilian society, while also making for riveting drama right down to the shocking sting in the tail.

A hugely impressive debut feature from Kleber Mendonça Filho.
