Synopsis

DANS NOS VEINES.
Inside the cockfighting pits in Thailand, in Philippines and the ones in Guadeloupe, Aod, Edgar and Dolores are preparing their roosters for an upcoming fight in front of a public of bettors and aficionados. For the Thais, the Filipinos and the Guadeloupeans, this sport runs through their veins meanwhile it is a tradition that seems meant to disappear. Why are these men so passionate for those ritualized cockfights in Thailand, in Philippines and in Guadeloupe?
