Antonia (Tata Amaral)
Determined to escape their resource-limited lives, four talented young women living on the outskirts of Sao Paulo, Brazil, form an all-female hip hop group but find their road to success is riddled with sexism, racism, and violence. One by one, they succumb to their grim realities...until they discover that out of struggle comes strength, and out of strength, the courage to continue on.
