They were the feared ones, the criminals who really ran Carandiru, Brazil's largest correctional facility: Ebony, an honourable thief and respected leader; Highness, a smooth operator with two families to support; Ezequiel; n ex-surfer turned crack addict; Dagger, a brutal killer with God in his side. They were among the prison's elite, the select few who ruled Carandiru by their own codes and laws. A rule that would end in bloodshed when 300 Policemen stormed the facility and brutally murdered 111 unarmed inmates.
