SYNOPSIS:
After his mother's sudden death, 15-year-old Socrates, living in the favelas of coastal São Paulo, must learn to survive on his own or be put into state care. This gritty, gripping story is told through his eyes as he struggles to carry on. Desperate to make money, Socrates searches for work and takes occasional day jobs. Disowned by his estranged, abusive father because of his sexuality, he is left to survive on his own. An unlikely relationship with a male co-worker, Maicon, gives Socrates some hope, but Maicon's homophobia gets in the way of their relationship evolving. As Socrates' life begins to unravel, we reflect upon our own struggles and how we, as humans, pull through. Produced by Ramin Bahrani (99 Homes) and filmed with a micro budget of under $20,000, Socrates is the debut feature from Brazilian-American director Alex Moratto and was co-written, produced and acted by at-risk teenagers with the support of UNICEF.
