    • Synopsis
    • The Uruguay of the future is the same as the current one, except for a single but big difference: yerba mate has been banned. Moncho and Fico are two illegal sellers of yerba, which roam the villages, bringing the precious infusion to their customers. Both decide to go to Paraguay to bring yerba seeds to return the mate to their people. "Mateina" is a comedy that combines elements of the popular culture of the southern cone, with a story of adventure and friendship.
