Living in a slum divided between two rival gangs of drug traffickers, Analídia is the daughter of one of the gangs leaders and Jonatha is a childhood friend of the other. Both study in a dance group,directed by Fernanda, situated exactly in the middle of the two groups. Openly inspired by Romeo and Juliet, the film is a review of our strong sense of music, our contemporary dance as well as the strange mix we find in slum, where violence lives along side artistic possibility brought by social projects.
