In an urban neighborhood in El Salvador, a little boy with a gapped-tooth smile named Rodrigo dreams of becoming a superhero.
But not so he can fly, become invisible or freeze his enemies.
He loves pretending he’s a superhero because every day he sees people who need one.
In a country where more than a third of the population lives in poverty, including Rodrigo, hungry bellies, leaky roofs and families struggling to send their kids to school and to get ahead are everyday realities.
“My dream is to be a superhero,” Rodrigo said. “To save and help people.”
