Dear Child

Luca Ammendola | 2020 | UK, Brazil | 79

Off the coast of Brazil a journalist writes a letter to his unborn child. He has returned from a drug rehabilitation centre in Rio De Janeiro, where he met a missionary priest who shelters teenagers on the run from the drug cartels. He witnessed a group of teenagers trying to turn their lives around from a past of drugs and violence. The boys spend time together playing football, flying kites and catching lizards …. and slowly, they began to open up and tell their stories.
