New Amazon Series dom takes us back to city of god’s crime-ridden favelas

Dom is a new series that was recently released on Amazon Prime. There’s serious City of God vibes flowing through it. Could Dom be Amazon’s answer to Netflix’s Narcos series?

Pedro is a drug addict that spends his day’s in Rio’s favelas constantly trying to find his next fix. His addiction has turned him into a petty criminal and he robs pretty much anything he can get his hands on to feed his cocaine addiction. When Pedro falls in with a new gang he ups his game and begins robbing Rio’s rich and powerful. The new group slowly start to rise and Pedro becomes one of Rio’s most feared drug dealers.

Pedro’s father, Victor is a well-respected ex-cop who played a huge part in tackling Rio’s drug problem in the 70s. With him trying to rid the streets of drugs, he is not there for his son. It has been a losing battle with Pedro since he was a young teen. He has tried to shield and protect him from the crime-ridden favelas but has lost his son to drugs and crime….the very thing he has been trying to eradicate.

The series jumps between timelines. It is set in the late 90s and this is Pedro’s rise to becoming the Dom. We also get to see a young Victor who is secretly hired to infiltrate a well-known drug gang operating out of a favela. We also see Pedro’s teen years, the first time he snorted coke and how addiction has had hold of him ever since.

For those of you that are fans of films like City Of God or Elite Squad, I think you’re all going to love Dom!

Season 1 is now available to stream on Amazon Prime. We hope you enjoy it. As always, thanks for reading.
