The dilemma of those who live in Rio's slums and struggle to overcome unbelievable poverty and gang violence seems even more painful since their favelas overlook one of the world's most beautiful beaches. This is the journey of one remarkable individual who emerged from the favelas to create the nonviolent flowering of Afro-Brazilian culture known as Afro-reggae.
