TO DIE BEFORE DYING

In a village in the Extremadura province of Spain, where bullfighting and the Catholic faith have long been a way of life, 16-year-old Tristán is training to become a bullfighter. His mother silently but anxiously observes his preparations. He practices graceful moves and posture, but he is plagued by insecurity and fear of the fight to come. TO DIE BEFORE DYING tells a personal story about a controversial reality of the 21st century.
