Pedrinha is a survivor of Candelária child massacre, one of the worst mass shootings in Brazil’s history: eight children sleeping rough on the street were killed in Rio de Janeiro. Hidden in a newsstand he witnessed the murder of eight boys. As he narrates what happened during that night, Pedrinha uncovers a society that profoundly denies its homeless kids even after their death!

Although it deals with a historical event, the play isn’t restricted to a documentary. The research included the observation of homeless children in Campinas, Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo. It also included the influence of a tale called “Mácario”, by Juan Rulfo.

The play has been performed in Brazil, Spain, Switzerland, Morocco, Kosovo, Scotland and Poland.
