Hector Babenco's film is based on true events and the book written by Dr Drauzio Varella. Sao Paulo's House of Detention (referred to as Carandiru) is one of Latin America's largest prison systems. When a doctor (Luiz Carlos Vasconcelos) arrives at the jail to test patients for HIV infection he soon realises that there is an internal power structure among the prisoners, dealing with overcrowding, disease and illegal drug use. However, almost as soon as he manages to establish the prisoners' trust and a routine, the prisoners begin to react violently to their situation, culminating in what is now known as the Carandiru Massacre - which took place on October 2nd, 1992.
