El Carnaval de los Naufragos
In The Carnival of the Shipwrecked, it all starts with the frustration of Chichongo Ariza, a visceral football fan, when one day he realizes that there are no young people left in Isla Sola, not even middle-aged men, able to measure themselves on the court to play a weekend game. And is that in Isla Sola the population ages without renewing. There are no births anymore. Meanwhile, the frantic activity is unleashed, which the old inhabitants do to celebrate the traditional Annual Busiraco Festival, a disorder that lasts only four days but demands a year of preparations.
