Open warfare has broken out in Sao Paolo between the police and criminal gangs. Hundreds have been gunned down in execution style killings and the carnage looks set to continue.
A notorious gang, the PCC, runs Sao Paolo's overcrowded jails. When news was leaked of a plan to break their power, all hell broke loose. They ordered their contacts to kill all policemen and 43 were gunned down. "How can it be that a man who's in jail commands everything that goes on out here?" despairs one victims' father. In retaliation, police death squads killed 400. Now, the fear is the killings will continue. As Prof. Ignacio states "We will probably see a worsening of prison conditions. This will trigger a harder reaction from criminal gangs leading us further into this vicious circle."FULL SYNOPSIS
