Palmas is a documentary about fifteen hundred families that in the 70s were evicted from their homes in the coastal area of Fortaleza moved by interests of real estate speculation. This would be a story among many that happen in Brazil and the world, not for the fact that this community has not only become a slum neighborhood structured, but created his own money: PALMS and a bank!
