Tonight, let’s talk about 3%, a Brazilian TV series that has captured the international audience with its gripping plot and deep social themes. This dystopian series, created by Pedro Aguilera, is set in a post-apocalyptic future where society is divided into two classes: the 3% of the population, who live in luxury, and the vast majority, who survive in poverty.

The series revolves around a unique opportunity: every year, all young people turn 20 and have the chance to participate in the “Process,” a series of physical and psychological tests to gain access to the Offshore, a privileged zone of prosperity and comfort. Only 3% of the participants will be able to access this new life.

Episode after episode, increasingly complex social themes are explored.
