Through a yellow filter, this ludic and experimental film centers around the friendship that is build between two excentric character: Pepe Moco and Beto. The first one is a boy with a sligh mental handicap that wanders through the streets, promoting a presidential candidate, with a cartoon on his back. Such support arose because the candidate promised the guatemalan people something rather appealing: to take the national football team to the World Cup. Beto, on the other hand, uses grafitti as a way to manifest his disatisfaction with his life. He makes a living robbing and hitting with a ball unaware passer-byers.
