Field of Dreams

A group of children are posing on the biggest playing field in the Morro da Coroa. This field is located at the top of the favela, which is one of the biggest around the central part of Rio de Janeiro and, in the past, was known as one of the most violent. Now, hundreds of children play different kinds of sports (but mostly soccer) in the many little playing fields within the favela.
