Sao Paulo is Brazil's biggest city and the business hub of the country. Nested between the sky scrapers are the favelas or urban slums housing the poor. The favelas epitomize a stark fact that has come to characterize the country today: the gulf between the rich and the poor in Brazil is one of the biggest in the world. Almost half the country's wealth is concentrated in the hands of just twenty thousand families--out of a population of 184 million. Today, President Lula da Silva's big project is to make a more equal society. In his election speech, he promised to improve education, to improve health, to make land ownership fairer and--most importantly--to fight poverty. But Brazil's business community believes rapid growth is what is needed to improve the country's economy and combat social inequality. Despite the gulf between rich and poor, extreme poverty is being reduced. In line with its Millennium Development Goal pledges, Brazil has halved the percentage of people living in extreme poverty.

Geraldo De Sousa had a dream he almost fulfilled. He'd worked his way out of a shantytown in Brazil's teeming metropolis, Sao Paulo. His cherished job in the Ford car factory supported his wife, two children and a new apartment. Then suddenly -- and through no fault of his own -- Geraldo found there wasn't any work for him anymore. He was told it was because of the financial meltdown in faraway South East Asia. But was that just an excuse? Or the harsh reality of the new globalized economy?

This episode of Life is the story of a group of friends trying to make it in the world's most socially divided society, Brazil. They call themselves 'The Posse' and they live in Sao Paulo, in one of Brazil's 2500 favelas or urban slums. The Posse is centered around a rap group whose songs explain the inequalities of life in Brazil today. Its members include schoolkids, the unemployed, social activists and university students. Beyond the boundaries of the favela, the program films with those who live in even worse conditions, in rat-infested city shelters for the homeless, as well as with the new urban elites: lawyers and a young man who has just made millions from an internet company.
