Set in a lawless slum in Rio De Janeiro, City of God tells the story of Rocket, an aspiring photographer looking for his big break so he can leave the treacherous area once and for all. The movie chronicles Rocket's life as a young boy as he deals with his law bending brother and his gang, all the way to his teen years as a pseudo hippie. As the crime level soars in brutality, Rocket begins to realise his niche as a photographer is his only means of staying honest. With a psychopathic thug named "Lil Ze" looking to take over the slum, Rocket's career will take him on his most dangerous task of all.
