The ghettos of Brazil are desperate and crime ridden. Amazingly, former drug dealer Anderson Sa has managed to turn his back on crime, and in the process created a new musical sound - AfroReggae. His epiphany came at a high price - the death of his brother, but now thousands use this form of expression as a means of escaping poverty.
An uplifting story that's well worth telling, but the directors rather lose sight of the wider sociological ramifications to iconise a figurehead whose courage is couched in almost miraculous terms.
