Life in the outskirts
Life in the urban outskirts of the big Brazilian cities like São Paulo imposes a life marked by routine, with great limitations in terms of leisure, either due to the facilities' precarious conditions, or due to lack of money.
Young people are offered very few possibilities to entertain themselves, practice sports and generally put their creativity to use. Often there are no realistic alternatives to engaging in illicit actions and the consumption of drugs and alcohol, which on the one hand appear as a form of entertainment, and on the other hand, are found in a violent environment that creates a new set of restrictions on exercise and leisure.
