Summary
  • Mal día para pescar: Jacob Van Oppen, the former strongest man on Earth, and his crafty manager, Orsini, make a good living by traveling around small South American towns, organizing bogus wrestling exhibitions in run-down theaters. Once this oddball pair disembarks at the village of Santa Maria, business really kicks off: the local newspaper sponsors the fight and helping hands place posters announcing an open call for a worthy adversary
  • Sofia: It's been four years since Sofia disappeared. Now, for the first time, she will have to tell her story
  • The nine mile walk: Two friends in a strange place begin a game of words that leads to an unexpected twist
