Stuck in a rural Brazilian town where they’ve tasted the bitterness of sexual exploitation, their only beacon of hope is Meninadança. It’s a safe haven and social project where they can dance, be free and feel empowered. It is run by Rita, a child advocate who fights the system, to rescue the girls from a life on the streets, while the girls themselves fight for survival with courage and optimism.
