“Now you’re getting the game.”

Thirteen-year-old Raúl is less than enthused about being forced to entertain Hernán, the spoiled son of the rich landowner who owns Raúl’s family’s farm. While Raúl’s father works up the courage to ask if he can use the landowner’s John Deere tractor, the boys wage a different kind of match. Will Raúl be bullied or emboldened?

Written and directed by Mauro Mueller. The film won Bronze Medal at the 2013 Student Academy Award for Best Narrative Short. Principal cast: Alexandré Barceló and Adrián Alonso.
