  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

In Spain, young men go out into the farms at night to secretly fight bulls. By performing this 'ritual' of 'making the moon' they hope one day to become fully-fledged matadores.
 
The film focuses on one Spanish boy, Jorge Contreras, and his efforts to become a bullfighter. Jorge is helped mostly by his father, who has always dreamt of becoming a torero himself. The relationship between father and son tells us a lot. Not only about bullfighting and Spain, but also about courage, freedom, killing and Oedipus.
