It's 1998, and Melo, an Uruguayan town on the Brazilian border, awaits the visit of Pope John Paul II. 50,000 people are expected to attend, and the most humble locals believe that selling food and drink to the multitude will make them rich. Pett smuggler Beto thinks he has the best idea of all - to build a WC in front of his house and charge for its use. HIs efforts bring about unexpected consequences, and the final results will suprise everyone.
An alternatingly touching, humorous and poignant story of human dignity and solidarity.
In Spanish with English Subtitles. Some foul language.
