- Need help?
It's the story of two child ragpickers, pepenadores, as they are called. They live in a slum and work in a huge dump in South America. Search, find, fight, exchange, sell: this is their daily life. A life story, somewhat à la Dickens, about the fate of children who have to work to help their parents survive.7 yo and up
