Shot in the favelas of Sao Paulo Brazil it provides testimony from those affected by the failed ‘war on drugs’. A war being waged on people - not drugs. 50 years of prohibition has not stopped the drugs trade, but violent law enforcement continues to destroy communities - whether people are in the trade or not. Highly punitive policing does not distinguish between use and trafficking in Brazil and failure to address the social and economic issues that drive people into the trade.

Health Poverty Action are calling for the legal regulation of the drugs trade; to control both the dangers of drug taking and to mitigate the harmful impacts the policies have on the poorest and most marginalised communities around the world.
