02 October 2020

Socrates, a handsome 15-year-old boy, is not just another underage kid living on the margins of society while working the construction sites of São palo, he has a purpose.

Because of the sudden death of his mother Socrates has had to fend for himself, trying desperately to earn the rent to keep his run-down apartment and remain out of the clutches of social services and his estranged father.

This is a beautiful-looking and personal LGBT+ film. Even though it was made on an impossibly tight budget its beating heart never fails.
