São Paulo, Brazil, 2007. Flavio, 17 years old, five bullets in his body. Adriano, 14 years old, crack addict. Bruna, 13 years old, shot a policeman. Cynthia, 18 years old, mother of three children. Nothing changes in this country. Street children are being rejected by their families, ignored by society, murdered by the police; they are called the “invisibles”. Charity organizations are their last resort. That’s where we installed a camera. Through auto portraits, they intimately testify, alone facing the camera. Thanks to this set up, we were able to establish a trusting relationship and  collect unique, free and sincere words. They accepted to tell us their stories under “the sole and unique condition is that this film will never be shown in Brazil.”
