It is 1997 and hundreds of thousands live in Rio's notorious favelas. Drug trafficking militias have complete control within the slums while the police run their criminal enterprises outside. The elite BOPE (State Police Special Operations Battalion) fights to combat drug trafficking, but keeping order has its price and their actions blur the line between right and wrong, justice and revenge.
