Recorded in prison, national series shows birth of criminal faction

D.R.

For 'Brotherhood' creators there is a market demand for works dealing with the violence of trafficking.

In a Sao Paulo slum, a girl watches the police beat up her brother before he is arrested on trafficking charges. Years later, she becomes a lawyer, and he takes the lead of a criminal faction.

The title of the series "Brotherhood", a fiction that debuts on the 25th on Netflix, has two very possible interpretations. On the one hand it refers to the family bond between the two protagonists who were born in the same wooden shack and who follow different paths from the perspective of justice. On the other, it refers to the FCC (First Capital Command), or to the sworn fraternity among those who, as members of the São Paulo faction, simply call each other "brother". Played by Naruna Costa and Seu Jorge, the blood brothers will expose in their stories the precariousness with which courts and police treat the poor in the country.
