This chapter focuses on a family story. Ivete’s family life guides us through a world where migration from Salvador meets hunger and the struggle for protection and social mobility in São Paulo. After following her family for fourteen years, the author shows how disjunctive patterns of understanding ‘crime’ and ‘work’ differ within the family as time has passed. Second and third generations split the family into two different social ascension projects: one where children work legally, and the other where the world of crime is seeing as a possibility. Capoeira, hairdressing and private security meet drug trafficking, robbery and incarceration at home. Money and violent deaths appear after some years of clash and association between brothers and sisters.
