1 poverty ? 2 urban development ? 3 marginal, peripheral communities ? 4 experiencing loss and otherness ? 5 mapping memory and people's wishes ? 6 poetry and meaning of everyday activities ? 7 children scribbling on boards, women badmouthing men ? 8 reinterpreting the way of life in Brazilian slums ? 9 a life transformed: subjective viewpoints expressing a collective experience ? 10 surprisingly, controlling the starting point allows for experiencing life freely

20 The inhabitants of a slum, who have to make way for the construction of a highway, appear in a film that - though it places them within a fictitious setting - allows for an authentic expression of their situation.
