Birdie & Karollyne

Rejected by everyone except for his two dogs, Birdie is a fruit peddler on the chaotic streets of Rio de Janeiro. Heloisa Passos presents this intimate story about friendship and the all too common story of survival for the homeless.

In the Tijuca forest in the city of Rio de Janeiro, people often leave their dogs and Karollyne hosts many of them. She currently lives with 12 dogs in an abandoned mansion occupied by other former homeless people.
