Beto is a poor man living in the poor village of Melo on the Brazilian Uruguay border. Like most men in his village he scratches a living carrying contraband across the border by pedal cycle. News of the impending visit of the Pope to Melo leads to a flurry of entrepreneurship as the locals, hoping not only for divine blessing but also a small share of material happiness, plan to provide fast food for the thousands of pilgrims who follow the Pope’s visit. Beto sees another gap in the market. A gentle wry comedy about hope and resilience in the face of poverty and bureaucracy.
