Jimbo

A Film by Rodrigo Zanforlin

Synopsis

“When the fact of living is oppressed, the rebel YELL !”

Jimbo, sixteen, quiet, and shy, has spent his life cowering in the shadow of his controlling, anarchist, father El Tigron, and his devoted yet delusional lover, Lolli. After their latest heist, Jimbo decides to take charge of his destiny and break free from his father’s prison. It is time to hear Jimbo’s inner rebel yell.
