    Drama

    When Maputo becomes the Bronx: a fast-paced thriller from Mozambique is reminiscent of US American examples of the genre. After four years in the toughest jail in the Mozambique capital Maputo, Bruno wants nothing more to do with his former life. With the help of his friends, he gets a job at a scrapyard and does seem to manage to make a new start. Then suddenly a mysterious unpaid debt of his dead mother’s turns up. To get the money together, Bruno comes into contact with his former gang and gets caught up in a spiral of violence and dependence – until he comes up with a plan that means staking everything on its success.
