The story is narrated by the aspiring photographer Rocket who was deterred from a life of crime by the death of his brother after a robbery went awry. Later, during the 1980s, Rocket'€™s career as a photographer leaves him fearing for his life as the police show up at one particular job of Rocket'€™s. Much a tale of violence, murder and the plight of organised crime in this small slum of Rio De Janerio.
