SYNOPSIS
Near the sewer and armed with a board, Macario, the town’s madman, hopes to kill the frogs that stole his godmother’s dream the night before. Provoked by sleep or insatiable hunger, Macario tries to remember, without success, an important incident that, according to his godmother, he committed. This is the reason for the people of the town want to stone him. Macario talks about his life marked by the decisions and threats of his godmother’s fanaticism and a hostile environment that frightens him and provokes a deep fear of death and hell. All this he lives, comments, dreams and shares. Finally, Macario returns to the initial point as in an unconscious challenge to time, incomprehension and death.
