Strays of Rio explores the question whether the cycle of violence can be broken. Center stage take a gang of street kids attacked by recreational killers. When the police take no action, a witness vows to purge Rio of the ruthless death squad. Her pursuit of justice spirals into a violent struggle to survive. Desperate, she enlists a drug lord, while the police is launching a new attempt to cleanse Rio of drug-traffickers in preparation for the Soccer World Cup and the Olympic Games.
Several attempts at cease-fire among the warring parties fail for various reasons. Fervor for justice, greed, and relentless pugnacity range high among them. There is hope though. A seed of peace may grow in the post-conflict world of Strays of Rio.
