    In 1988, filmmakers Luc Cote and Robbie Hart went to Cusco, Peru, to make a documentary about the life of the city's street kids, runaway children from dysfunctional families or youngsters abandoned by their parents, who struggle to survive on their own. Twelve years later, the filmmakers return to Peru, hoping to find the same children and to see what they've become. As Luc and Robbie do some local 'detective work' and eventually locate Carlos, Angel, Sonia and Willy, contemporary interviews with these young people are blended with footage of them as children twelve years earlier. It soon becomes clear how each has been emotionally shaped, even traumatized, by their difficult life experiences and how they continue to struggle today with many of the same personal and social issues.
