Parallel Universe

Referring to the physical theory of the parallel universe, there might be a forbidden universe born out of Slums, full of youngsters close to the abysm of society. The documentary pictures one of the most dangerous and poorest slums in São Paulo’s South Region and tells through the personal stories of young hip hoppers the importance of the musical movement that emerged as a society criticism and weapon against crime and poverty.
