SYNOPSIS

Vilmar and Franco (a.k.a Toro) grew up in the city of Gualeguaychú. Since they were children, every summer they would go together to be part of the traditional carnival of their hometown. This magical celebration, transforms men of the community into dionysiac figures with costumes, glitter and feathers. Friendship, drinking and out of control parties are all that matters. Boundaries are blurred in the heat of the sun at the shore of the imposing Paraná River.
