Portland 2013 In Spanish

After fleeing the trappings of fame, for- tune, and success in the bullfighting arena, an orphan turned beloved matador navigates the afterlife. On the advice of a mystic healer he journeys into the desert to perform a ritual of rebirth and burns his suit of lights, the traditional bull-fighting costume. Upon waking he is joined on his path through limbo by three joyful yet mischievous companions—guiding spirits in the form of rodeo clowns. As the clowns begin to tease out the matador’s secrets and ease him into his new life, they are meanwhile being closely pursued by their age-old rivals in the struggle for souls, three dark sirens who seek the matador for their own purposes.
