Jacob van Oppen – formerly the strongest man on earth,” now a washed up alcoholic—and his crafty manager, Orsini, make good money staging bogus wrestling matches in small South American towns. When this oddball duo arrives in the unassuming village of Santa Maria, crafty, Orsini, is sure he can find the right opponent to throw the fight, but fishing in Santa Maria yields a bigger catch than he’d hoped for.

Jordan Mintzer in Variety said “Álvaro Brechner’s ambitious debut is something like a retro ‘The Wrestler’ by way of the Cohen Brothers.” The film is in Spanish with English subtitles. Please note: independent films are not rated by the MPAA and should be considered for mature audiences.
