Synopsis: 

From the deep misery of the Brazilian favelas, a new generation of activists is emerging: young, imaginative and angry. One of them is Lamartine Silva alias Negro Lamar: committed artist, black and poor, he is one of the most eminent members of the MHHOB, (Organized Hip-hop Movement of Brazil), an artistic movement using culture as a tool of social change. In a society on the verge of exploding, we closely followed Lamartine and his comrades in their daily battle to make the MHHOB, an organization using hip-hop culture to represent the poor.
