When three trash-picking boys from Rio's slums find a wallet among the daily debris of their local landfill, little do they imagine that their lives are about to change forever. But when the local police show up offering a handsome reward for the wallet's return, the boys, Rafael, Gardo and Rato realize that what they've found must be important.
