This show is not about a suburb Family. In fact, they live, and the all show is about it, in a very typical quarter in the center of Lisbon. (Sapadores). It was, and in my opinion is, until now, the best Portuguese cast and script (even if it's adapted. I live very near the quarter this show was filmed, and it really shows, with some exaggerations, how people in here live. The older brother is always looking for a way of easy money, in the limits of legal situations, but usually ends up ruined. The younger brother is a lot like a consicence adviser, but ends up getting involved in every scam of his brother. It's a must see!
