The film follows the favela, "Cidade de Deus" throughout three decades in the 20th century, mainly focusing on the 1980's. The film's main character and narrator, Buscape is a resident of the favela and wants to escape the violent way of life that surrounds him on a daily basis.
The film was not actually shot in Cidade de Deus slum as it was too dangerous. It was shot in a neighbouring, less dangerous area.
