Bolas Criollas

A Film by Juan Vicente Manrique
and Vittorio Dugarte Barbarito

Synopsis

CREOLE BALLS
Oscar and Paco live in a country where a fascist revolution has been imposed for the last 50 years forcing the people to live stark naked. The two lifelong friends enjoy a sunny day on the beach. As they chat they fall into a discussion provoked by the difference between opinions regarding the revolution; Oscar has his doubts of the revolutionary process, however Paco is a proud conformist and a faithful believer of the movement. Although they have differences in their ways of thinking,  both will end up realizing that doesn’t matter what you think, you are just too small to do something about it.
