After his mother's sudden death, Socrates, a 15-year-old living on the outskirts of São Paulo's coastal region, is forced to survive on his own. Unable to pay the rent he faces eviction and also isolation because of his sexuality and eventually his search for a decent, happy life reaches breaking point.  This gritty, moving and intimate portrait of life in a marginalized society features wonderful performance from its non-professional cast, none more so than Christian Malheiros in the role of Socrates giving a memorable screen debut.

Socrates comes to UK DVD on October 12th, and we've got two copies to give away to lucky UK readers.

The winners are:

Mark Graham, Hertford
Craig Lutas, South Shields
