When the system fails, they don't.
  • Don't worry, you won't feel a thing.

This highly-decorated Brazilian film is based on true events. Set in 1997 before the Pope's visit to Brazil, the police have a serious problem. The drug lords run the slums, and corrupt cops control crime elsewhere. The situation needed rectifying before the Pope arrived. The police pulled in new special forces to deal with their twin problems, including two new recruits, childhood friends, who together made a great team, but alone, would they be able to cope? In Portuguese with English subtitles.
