The favelas on the outskirts of the Brazilian metropolis Belo Horizonte have women's names. Leidiane and Andreia are friends and live in a part of town called Juliana. The film observes their everyday lives in the ramshackle housing, only few concrete walls away from bloody gang wars -- and Andreia's move to the neighbouring slum of Baronesa. Their conversations reveal a female perspective of a world dominated by men that despite all the harshness possesses a raw beauty. In Baronesa
, men are not the leading figures and the film crew also consisted almost entirely of women.
