The Little Street Kid tells the story of Maria in the slums of Baranquilla, Colombia. Maria and her friend Sophie are caught up in the kidnapping of a wealthy family. They are taken deep into the mountainous jungle, but when the rebels are attacked, Maria leads her new ‘family’ through the jaguar and snake-infested forest to safety. Little does Maria know that the jungle is not the only danger she should fear.
