Toto and His Sisters
Little Toto’s mother is in prison for smuggling and selling narcotics and he now lives with his teen sisters in a ghetto, surrounded by poverty and drugs. Despite his circumstances, he finds delight in dance and dreams of a dancing career. When his oldest sister ends up in jail too, he’s left with his 15-year old sister Andrea and the two dream of a better life to come. This breathtaking film by Emmy award winner Alexander Nanau is a heartbreaking documentary about hopes and dreams which, for small Toto, might actually come true.
