They call themselves ‘Captains of the Sands,’ a gang of orphans and runaways who live by their wits and daring in the torrid slums and sleazy back alleys of Bahia. Led by 15-year-old ‘Bullet,’ the band-including a crafty liar named ‘Legless,’ the intellectual ‘Professor,’ and the sexually precocious ‘Cat’-pulls off heists and escapades against the right and privileged of Brazil. But when a public outcry demands the capture of the ‘little criminals,’ the fate of these children becomes a poignant, intensely moving drama of love and freedom in a shackled land.
