Based on a classic story by Latin American literature master Juan Rolfo, this drama tells the story of Dionosio Pinzon, a poor peasant living in a small Mexican town with his mother. When he's given an injured gamecock, Dionosio soon becomes interested in cockfighting and sets off to find his fortune in cockfights and gambling. This profound film by Arturo Ripstein is in part an homage to filmmaker Luis Bunuel's work in Mexico.
