Synopsis

Explores the cycles of violence that plague Brazil's upper and lower economic classes in fits of rampant corruption and violent kidnappings. These cycles are chronicled utilizing personalized stories that reflect the growing truth about Brazil's huge economic disparities--differences that cause violence on both sides of the spectrum. A frog farm connected to a corrupt politician and one of the most powerful men in Brazil; a kidnapping victim who had both her ears cut off before she was released to her parents; a wealthy plastic surgeon who pioneered the procedure used to reconstruct the ears of kidnapping victims; and a kidnapper who has watched many like him escape the poorest parts of Brazil for the wealthier Sao Paolo, where they terrorize the upper class with kidnappings, theft and murder.
