El niño que robó el caballo de Atila / The Boy who Stole Attila's Horse

El niño que robó el caballo de Atila / The Boy who Stole Attila's Horse

Synopsis:

Two brothers, Big and Small, are trapped at the bottom of a well. They have no food and little chance of rescue. Only the tempting spectre of insanity offers a way out. As Small's wits fail, Big formulates a desperate plan.
With the authority of the darkest fables, and the horrifying inevitability of all-too-real life, Repila's unique allegory explores the depths of human desperation and, ultimately, our almost unending capacity for hope.
