Cocada and Nego are two boys in their early teens living in a small town in Pernambouc, Brazil. Cocada and Nego are half-brothers who live with their mother, stepfather and eight other siblings in a ramshackle house where the children are often left to care for themselves as their parents work. Since the death of Cocada's father, he's been preoccupied with his dream of learning how to drive and becoming a truck driver; Nego's ambitions are not as clear, but like his half-brother he wants to move away, get a good paying job and lead a better life. When not trying to scrape up odd jobs or looking after the other kids, Cocada and Nego often hang out at a nearby gas station and convenience store, where the stream of cars and trucks dashing in and out reflect their dreams of finding another life elsewhere. Filmmakers Jean-Pierre Duret and Andréa Santana spent some time with Cocada and Nego, and Puisque Nous Sommes Nes is a documentary that offers a look at their lives as they struggle with poverty and dream of a happier future. Puisque Nous Sommes Nes was an official selection at the 2008 Venice Film Festival.
