    This documentary chronicles one week in the life of street kids living in Cusco, Peru. Working in collaboration with a shelter for some of Cusco's 3,000 street kids, the filmmakers enlist several of the youngsters to form a street theatre company. Through a series of theatrical skits, the kids express their vision of life in the street and, in the process, reveal a complex world of sorrows and joys.
