    • The life of a sea lion is pretty unfair. During mating season, the strong ones take ten females each, nine males have to cope without a partner.
      MANUAL OF AN ALFA MACHO is a wildlife comedy. In an ironic way, it observes a colony of sea lions and tells the story of one of them: We follow him through the crude beauty of his birth, being fed by his mother, and being pushed away when the next new-born is due. His adolescent fight to define his place in life - and finally his efforts during mating season.
      In a fresh and funny way and with entertaining narration, the film draws comparisons and switches from the sex life of sea lions to our own manners of courtship and mating. Isn´t our life all about reproducing ourselves? What does us humans divide from mammals when it comes to love, sex and reproduction? Aren´t we all sea lions after all…?
