Based on a true story, Last Stop 174 is a shockingly realistic picture of growing up in the slums of Rio de Janeiro. The protagonist, young Sandro, is both criminal and victim in a world where lies, degradation, corruption and violence are the norm, and where justice is an unreal concept.

The source of inspiration for a film was the famous hijacking of a bus no 174 in Rio de Janeiro in 2000. At that time 21 years old Sandro terrorized 11 passengers for almost 5 hours what was watched live by millions of Brazilians.

Discovered at 2008 Rio de Janeiro International Film Festival -opening movie.
