Laranjinha (Darlan Cunha) have become close as brothers.
With their eighteenth birthdays fast approaching, Laranjinha
sets out to find the father he never met, while Acerola
struggles to raise his own young son. But when they suddenly
find themselves on opposite sides of a gang war, the
lifelong friends are forced to confront a shocking secret
from their shared past.
