Synopsis:
A delightful drama set in Maputo about two boys who become friends and together reinvent a new life full of fun. In order to support his family, 12-year-old Paito sells fritters outside his house in the suburbs of the big city. One day, a band of young robbers takes his money. He decides he is not going to go home until he recovers what he lost. With this aim in mind, he heads out for the city. Looking for work, he begins to live in a major market square that at night becomes a dormitory for homeless vendors. There he meets Xano, a boy his age, whose insolent behavior and fearlessness attracts him. They become friends and reinvent the world. In the days to come, using great creativity and displaying a natural head for business, Paito starts to make his money back. But those who robbed him in the first place are also in the market and look for trouble…..
