The Plaza de Sé in São Paulo is their home. The street children have to take care of themselves and have no time to enjoy their childhood. Abandoned by her mother, one day the six-year-old Rolinha joins the girl gang led by Doca, a girl who has seen and experienced more of life than all the other children.
