    • Synopsis
    • Yara is very upset with her baby brother, who takes all the attention of her parents for the little time they are at home. Finally when they manage to take a short holiday together, the cheeky Yara annoys her parents and decides to sneak out of the car. As they didn't even notice her disappearance and as the sun begins to set, the girl realizes that she has to spend for first time of her life, the night far away from her cozy bed and family. Yara is scared but Tito, a thirteen-year-old, lone wolf street child and member of one of the two youth gangs that rule the city center, saves her.
      Tito’s gang ‘The Petty Thieves’, is known for non violence but whereas the ‘Ninjas’ gang, as soon as they heard about a missing child, they start searching for the girl and comploting a kidnap for ransom. Regardless of their differences, the strong-minded little girl tries to team with the passive Tito to survive in this urban jungle full of adults and teen predators like the ‘Ninjas’.
