Adopting an overblown style of performance, the picture maintains an edgy quality where one is often wondering whether to laugh or shudder at the proceedings.

Brazilian actress Marilia Pera arrives on the scene like some loud, conquering hero and with her son, Thiago (Richard Ulacia), fashions a Hispanic ring of young teenagers to challenge an established gang. After stealing a shipment intended for the reigning Puerto Rican Group, Rita la Punta (Pera) sets up her own operation.

The offbeat nature of the piece is further reinforced by the mixture of pro and amateur talent and a variety of acting styles.
