An absolute delight...

Steeped in tradition and beautifully shot.

There's a moment of such tenderness...you will feel a jolt!

The(ir) Blurb...

After a year of drought, best friends Nicolas and Pablo prepare for “The Tigers’ Fight”, a traditional ritual in which the village men fight each other to imitate thunder and foster the rain. As part of the ritual, some of the tigers also deliver commitment flowers to a girl as a sign of love. Nicolas wants to offer flowers to a special someone, but it’s not a girl.
