Review
This charming film tells the tale of an impoverished family trying to make a profit from the much anticipated 1988 visit of the Pope to their under developed village near the Brazilian border. Family head and small time smuggler Beto decides to build a first class pay latrine for the thousands of expected devotees to use. Gradually though we become aware of the risk that this idea leaves his family open to, and the desperation of his need to provide a better life for his family within the poverty in which they live.
