Juizo follows the process of minors who have fallen into the hands of the Brazilian legal system. Boys and girls from underprivileged backgrounds faced with crime, ruling, and sentences handed down for theft, drug trafficking, and even murder. Due to legal constraints about revealing the true indentity of the minors charged, the accused adolescents were substituted with young people chosen for having themselves lived in similar social conditions, athough innocent of any actual crime.
