Three teens living in the same São Paulo shanty town pursue their dreams while maintaining their friendship, amid a world of music, drugs and religion.
Sintonia does a fair job in depicting life in the slums (favelas) of Brazil’s largest city – São Paulo. The lives of a young rapper (funkeiro), evangelical and gangster are intertwined in a simple and predictable story. The sad reality is that not many paths exist for those in the favelas. Netflix has my praise for taking the favela to a global public, perhaps the world now know that those in the favelas are are only trying to live a life like anyone else.
