With a cast made up of young people from Instituto Querô, a NGO from Santos (São Paulo) dedicated to promoting social inclusion through audiovisual, the film tells the story of the title character. After his mother's death, Sócrates, a 15-year-old boy, has to face poverty, violence, racism and homophobia, tough challenges that are common to many Brazilians of his generation who are at risk of social vulnerability.
Son of a Brazilian mother and an American father, he studied film at the University of North Carolina and participated in film labs such as the Sundance Institute. In college, his final film project was awarded by the Director's Guild of America. His five short films were screened at several international festivals.
