“BROCHE DE ORO: COMIENZOS”

Feature Presentation

 

TRAILER

 

 

 

 

Rafael, Pablo and Anselmo meet at an elders’ home. Their friendship grows based on their sense of humor and will to live. Life at the home can be sad. With their typical wit, they recruit other residents, particularly a trio they call The Greeks, to challenge rules and go into a contest for a prize. Because there are no rules for growing old, Broche de oro: Beginnings celebrates life and reminds us to live it to the fullest until the end.
