This is the story of a "maletilla", a young man who, without means and without help, tries to enter the world of bullfighting by participating in "capeas", a popular minor bullfighting festival in which bulls are fought for fans according to the customs of each locality . He was an outstanding participant in the "capeas" of the Carnaval del Toro 2019.
