loose in the Argentinean economic wilderness, middle-aged car mechanic
Juan Villegas has a hard time making a living until, in exchange for
repairing a fan-belt, he is given Bombón, a pedigreed Argentine Dogo,
who miraculously leads the unassuming Patagonian into the heady world
of dog show breeding, training, and competitions.Bombón completely
changes his “owner’s” life, especially during the truly sweet climax.
