A young man from a poor neighborhood in Brazil was arrested by the military police and never seen again. Assisted by the local newspaper, his dad conducted an investigation that led to the indictment of several policemen. The Brazilian police is the most violent in the world with more than six thousand homicides every year, a situation in which president Bolsonaro advocates the right of police officers and civilians to shoot supposed offenders without fear of prosecution. This documentary weaves the investigation of Geovane's murder with a debate about the historic and social roots of police brutality.
