An occasional break from the have-to-dos in daily life may lead us to deliberate over larger issues like, say, the welfare of the underprivileged. We fail to realize that as man is getting closer to the moon, he is moving farther away from his fellow men. An insight into the lives of the meniƱos da rua (children of the streets) points an accusing finger at our apathy to such glaring social problems. And this movie appears like it was originally conceived with the idea of projecting the situation in Brazil where child prostitution and mass infant massacres are daily news. It's a pity how it turned out, and how its publicity promises very different things.

Boca (Tarcision Mera) is a drug lord in Brazil who has sporadic fits of goodwill intermitting spite against the world. He takes young orphans under his wing under the pretext of protecting them and employs them to sell dope. Jennifer James, portrayed by Martin Sheen, is a journalist who is tremendously impressed by this 'hero', to the extent of deifying him. Ignoring the fact that he sells drugs, she approaches him with the intention of interviewing him and letting the world know what a great man he is.

The filthy animal that he is, Boca dopes her and then gropes her. He sets the stage for the final scene where she gets to question a successful businessman who appears out of nowhere and accepts that he was responsible for killing innumerable young children. The denouement of the plot is that Jennifer gets sick of Boca and his stubborn ideologies and finishes him off in great dramatic style.

This 45-minute film doesn't have much to narrate as it tries to balance itself between a documentary and a lucrative offer for the lust-lorn. It would best be called a movie that 'presents the bare facts'. If the Don was supposed to look like a terrifying psychopath, he fails miserably; and that the protagonists (???) look least attractive and emotive is an understatement.

The background score stands out amid such a shoddy presentation, leaving quite an impression on our minds. If you are wondering as to why we need to scrutinize the technical details of such a movie, it is 'coz it isn't just a porno movie, it is a porno movie with a message!
