THIS IS MY REALITY
29 June 2018 | by kiko-netoSee all my reviews

Don't you guys care about what those people who rate 1/10 say because I grew up in a poor slum located in the northest of Brazil and I'll tell you what... This is the perfect representation of what the slum life is like. The acting and pacing here is not the most important, if you lived this you'll know what the directo wants to show. Every single time that the rap band appears they sing about different stages of the criminal life. Watch this and you'll know exatcly what is like to grow up in a slum area where the traffic and gangs are the law and the sole hope to the child who is growing up with any kind of expectations in studies or life, they just want to be recognized by the others and for that they steal, kill, sell and do drugs, etc.
