Balo, Ricardo, Domingo and Kike have been friends pretty much since the day they were born eight decades ago in Peru’s El Callao neighborhood. Fate delivers a cruel blow when Kike dies on the eve of the game that could lead their favorite soccer team to first place in the league. The now trio decide to steal Kike’s ashes and take them to the match, stopping first at some of their favorite youthful hangouts for one last hurrah. Villaran’s opera prima is a mischievous celebration of friendship and loyalty.
