'Sintonia' produced by Netflix and Losbragas, a modern entertainment production company, makes an attempt to dive deep into life in Brazil. The six-part series featuring artists M.C. Jottapê ( Doni), Christian Malheiros ( Nando) and Bruna Mascarenhas (Rita) will air on August 9, on Netflix.

The Brazilian teen drama series looks into the lives of three local teens from the suburban region of Brazil, São Paulo.  The three characters have very varied perspectives and the story of this series explores how they navigate through life using music, drama, religion, family, and crime. Doni, Nando, and Rita are childhood friends who have grown up together in the same favela (slum area). Despite being friends, the teens are easily influenced and have contradictory thoughts about drug trafficking, funk music, and the church.

It is these experiences from childhood which influences their decisions as young adults. The trip to adulthood is very hard for these three friends which sees them take on very different paths. Through their attempt to make their lives different from what it was when they were children, it will be an ultimate realization for them that only they can be saviors for each other. 

Brazillian screenwriter and director Konrad Dantes or KondZilla as he is known on YouTube has a 30 million fanbase looking forward to his series.

KondZilla will attempt to show how they value the young population in Brazil something which has never been displayed realistically on screen before. The series will represent real life in the big city slum of Brazil as reported by  Guilherme Moraes (screenwriter) in Variety.  'Sintonia' will be a real crowd-puller, with its storyline and cast. Many Brazilian YouTube fans and Netflix viewers will enjoy the release of a new series looking into the less posh areas of Brazil. Audiences will be attracted to the music, sounds, landscapes, novelty added Felipe Braga (screenwriter). 

Moraes believes that the series has worked towards connecting its audience to viewing the contemporary spirit of the 21st-century generation. The audience will also be able to understand the size of São Paulo as the makers of the series have put a lot of effort into getting a range of wide angles with drones and cameras that will give the viewers a real feel of the plot and the expanse of the area. 

'Sintonia', premieres today on Netflix.  It is expected to be a big hit with its modern and 21st-century take on the life of three young adults trying to get away from poverty. It will be further interesting to see how they make their dreams come true battling additional peer pressure that leads them into the world of drugs and music and the church's principles which come in the way.
