Coming from an upper middle class family, Hiroito de Moraes used to be seen at Boca do Lixo, a prostitution area in the city centre of São Paulo in the 50’s and 60’s, as a bohemian searching for sexual adventures. But one day, his father is murdered and he becomes the main suspect.
A biopic of one of Brazil’s most notorious gangsters, this action-packed crime thriller is adapted from the autobiography of the so-called “King of Boca do Lixo.” With a terrific central turn from Daniel de Oliveira, the award-winning Boca brings the teeming streets of 1950s São Paulo to vivid life.
