Based on the book by Andy Mulligan, and featuring Martin Sheen and Wagner Moura, the story revolves around three kids — played by Rickson Tevez, Luis Eduardo, and Gabriel Weinstein — whose discovery of a wallet in a local dump sets them off an unexpected adventure that will have them dodging the police. However, they find help from a pair of missionaries who may be able to guide them to safety. In this scene, we see Mara’s Olivia teach the boys some basic English vocabulary. 

“Trash” opens in limited release on October 9th. Watch below.
