Comedia Infantil / Nelio's Story (1998) DVD5
Based on Swedish author Henning Mankell's novel, the story of Nelio (the bright-eyed Sergio Titos), a street kid in Mozambique, is a fantastical journey from the horror of civil war in the countryside to the daily struggle for survival on the streets of the capital city.

Nelio is found fatally wounded on the stage of the local theater by Jose the baker. Nelio insists on spending his remaining hours telling his tale to this sympathetic man who would prefer to send for help. Nelio's village is torn apart by gun-wielding night marauders and Nelio himself is rounded up for a rebel training camp. He makes his escape to the city where he hooks up with a group of street kids who show him the ropes. Nelio becomes the de facto leader of the group, despite being a mere ten years old. He also begins demonstrating unusual healing powers, which will abandon him at a crucial moment.
