Brazilian MD Drauzio Varella starts AIDS prevention in Brazil's largest
prison, Carandiru, in São Paulo, where the population is nearly double
its 4,000 maximum. Doc learns from experience and mainly stories the
tragic stories of hideous crimes which landed scum there and passionate
dramas adding otherwise decent people. Just when he believes to leave
the prisoners happy with a soccer tournament, a silly clothing line
argument kick-starts a politically opportune revolt repression.
