In the crime-riddled favelas of Rio de Janeiro, there is a perilously thin line between law and disorder. "There are over 700 slums in my city and most are ruled by drug dealers," explains Captain Nascimento, who leads the notoriously brutal BOPE, a crack team of police officers authorised to use extreme force to clear the streets of crime. With his first child on the way, Nascimento prepares to step aside, grooming two new recruits - hot-headed Neto and intellectual Mathias - as potential successors. The newcomers to the squad prove their worth in a hail of gunfire as BOPE engages the neighbourhood hoodlums in open war for control of the city.
