00:
00:46,446 -- 00:00:49,416

Man, in the beginning

there's only confusion.

2

lmages...

3

00:
00:50,483 -- 00:00:53,316

of all the things

we've gathered in life.

4

00:
00:53,486 -- 00:00:57,422

Things we saw, experienced

and even invented.

5

00:
00:58,525 -- 00:01:04,589

Man, l really feel like fixing

all that's messing with my mind.

6

00:
01:05,632 -- 00:01:10,592

Things here and there

and that's how the story starts.

7

00:
01:24,651 -- 00:01:27,518

I started steaIing cars

with the boys.

8

00:
01:28,555 -- 00:01:30,523

Then, the poIice caught us.

9

00:
01:31,458 -- 00:01:33,483

Since I was a minor,

I was sent to Febem.

10

00:
01:36,529 -- 00:01:38,463

How Iong were you there for?

11

00:
01:40,467 -- 00:01:41,491

2 years.

12

00:
01:42,469 -- 00:01:44,437

Have you been out Iong?

13

00:
01:45,572 -- 00:01:47,437

2 months.

14

00:
01:50,477 -- 00:01:52,411

What did you say

your name was?

15

00:
01:52,645 -- 00:01:54,476

HeracIes.

16

00:
01:55,582 -- 00:01:57,573

You'II be a deIivery boy

for one day.

17

00:
01:57,650 -- 00:02:00,551

If everything works out,

I'II hire you.

18

00:
02:02,722 -- 00:02:06,453

''12 LABORS''

19

00:
02:11,464 -- 00:02:14,490

The city is all cement,

stone and steel.

20

00:
02:15,502 -- 00:02:18,528

Restless people

in their spaces and voids.

21

00:
02:19,506 -- 00:02:21,541

The stone and steel remain.

22

00:
02:21,541 -- 00:02:24,511

Restless city beings

come and go.

23

00:
02:24,511 -- 00:02:26,513

The city is a world

being created...

24

00:
02:26,513 -- 00:02:29,716

and every world has its own

borders, its forbidden places.

25

00:
02:29,716 -- 00:02:32,519

Neighborhoods denote classes...

26

00:
02:32,519 -- 00:02:34,578

streets denote who you are.

27

00:
02:34,654 -- 00:02:38,525

Man, depending on

where you were born...

28

00:
02:38,525 -- 00:02:42,655

your story is written

even before it starts.

29

00:
03:33,546 -- 00:03:35,537

Yo, champ, what's up?

30

00:
03:35,682 -- 00:03:37,479

Yo, MaguiIa.

31

00:
03:38,685 -- 00:03:41,588

You've been away

and forgot the brothers.

32

00:
03:41,588 -- 00:03:43,690

I was Iooking after my mother.

33

00:
03:43,690 -- 00:03:45,624

Going for a ride with your cousin?

34

00:

03:58,605 -- 00:04:01,597

The guys are worried

you might finger us.

38

00:
04:01,808 -- 00:04:04,811

-The guys?

-Some dumbasses.

39

00:
04:04,811 -- 00:04:07,712

43

00:
04:20,627 -- 00:04:21,728

What did he want?

49

00:
04:41,848 -- 00:04:43,816

Just to taIk.

50

00:
04:43,816 -- 00:04:45,750

What do you mean ''just to taIk''?

51

00:
04:45,818 -- 00:04:49,686

He offered to heIp if I needed.

52

00:
04:51,824 -- 00:04:53,655

That guy's no good.

53

00:
