The Hidden Tiger. The animal instinct in ourselves

Juninho, Minor, Neguinho, Adilson and Eldo are young dwellers of Nacional's neighborhood, Contagem's suburb.

The director Affonso Uchoa uses an observational approach to follow the boys around their humble neighborhood as they talk about life, sing a rock song or walk in the streets.

Divided between work and fun, crime and hope, each one of them will have to find ways to overcome the obstacle and tame the tiger that they bring inside their veins.
