Shot in Mozambique, the film depicts the life of an orphan boy, Nelio - impressively played by Sérgios Titos - whose parents were killed by guerrillas. Forced to live his village, he finds himself in an unnamed city where his magical powers make him the leader of a gang of homeless kids. This violent, yet mythic coming-of-age story is based on a novel by the popular Swedish writer Henning Mankell.
