Bad day to go fishing: Jacob van Oppen, the former "strongest man on earth" and now an alcoholic, and his manager Orsini, who calls himself "the Prince," make a good living by traveling around small South American towns and organizing wrestling exhibitions. Arriving in Santa Maria, they are met with uncommon enthusiasm: the local newspaper wants to sponsor the fight, helping hands placard the town with posters, and an open call is made for a worthy adversary. Ever so resourceful, Orsini knows how to find the right combatant, but fishing in Santa Maria could lead to a bigger catch than he'd hoped for.
Nine mile walk: Two friends in a strange place begin a game of words that leads to an unexpected twist.
Sofia: It's been four years since Sofia disappeared. Now, for the first time, she will have to tell her story.

This film from South America could definitely have been done better. As it is the film is long for its content. It is a directorial debut, and it kind of showed.

This is a really quirky film, but I loved it. It covers a hustler and a strongman and what happens when they are challenged by a local strongman in a small town. The characters are great and the story is great.
