    • Synopsis
    • Why do young people decide from north and south of Portugal to face death in the arena instead of devoting themselves to boxing, paragliding or surfing? There is a wild youth that defies life in search of adrenaline, but they don't do it on their own. Unlike bullfighters, they do it in a group with rules and disciplines imposed on everyone. It's a sport, but it's mainly a cultural manifestation that links Portugal and Mexico, the only countries where men on foot defy the bull with their bravery alone: the pitchforks.
