Elite Squad (Tropa de Elite)

Description
Through Wagner Mura's book, that controversial story begins. In Brazil, the writer Nascimento wanted to find an alternate. But it seems that the writer Nascimento wanted to track drug distributors and stay one step on the Pope's arrival to Rio de Cainero. It seems to be a real risk for the writer to tell the story is the coolest.
