Synopsis

It is 1988 and Pope John Paul II is set to visit the impoverished town of Melo, Uruguay, on the border with Brazil. The Pope will begin his tour through Latin America in this small town where over 50,000 visitors are expected. The more modest townsfolk are convinced his visit will prove a miracle for their souls as well as their hip-pockets – they will get rich selling food and drink to the pilgrims descending en masse. However, Beto has an even more lucrative plan: install latrines in front of his house and rent them.

Es 1988 y el Papa Juan Pablo II visitará la empobrecida ciudad de Melo, Uruguay, en la frontera con Brasil. El Papa comenzará su gira por América Latina en este pequeño pueblo donde se esperan más de 50,000 visitantes. Los habitantes más modestos de la ciudad están convencidos de que su visita será un milagro para sus almas y sus bolsillos de cadera: se enriquecerán vendiendo comida y bebida a los peregrinos que descienden en masa. Sin embargo, Beto tiene un plan aún más lucrativo: instalar letrinas frente a su casa y alquilarlas.
