    • The village of Los Talas, distinguished of being a craft cheese producer, is now under the schemes of Rodolfo Bergadier, an omnipresent tyrant, who after winning “The Great Cheese Race” forbids the micro craft cheese production in the village.
      He installs a huge factory of cream cheese and exposes all the children, adults and elderly people to work for the industry.
      Eliminating 29 February of the calendar, he forbids to celebrate the traditional cheese race (29 February) and with the repressive forces under his power, he keeps the whole town under control.
      Dambo Gorgonzola is a 12 year old boy (one of the greatest cheesemaker master´s son) that being a kid, he runs away from the village and then returns at the age of 24 to join the great cheese race thinking the scheme have finished.
      Upon his return, he discovers that the scheme continues and even worst than before. He is kidnapped by “The Greys” (Rodolfo Bergadier’s soldiers) and then rescued by an anonymous group.
      He is moved to the outskirts of the village, and there he links with the rebel team "Grated Cheese Group", that lives in communion marginalized by themselves of the authoritarian scheme.
      Dambo joins them and together, they organize a cheese invasion. Thus, they try to restore The Great Cheese Race, claim the cheeses handcrafted and return the happiness and freedom to the people of Los Talas.
