City of Wild Beasts movie poster

Tato is an aimless orphan, a young rap lover. He, together with his friends Pitu and La Crespa, seek to resist and find a different alternative to death and crime through the art of hip hop, participating in improvisational street battles. After an altercation with gang members, Tato must flee his neighborhood. His only option is to leave the city, and live with Octavio, his grandfather, a floriculturist, whom he does not know. Two generations, two ways of life and a continuous sense of loss, death and loneliness mark Tato’s life as he struggles to survive and find his own identity.
