El Amateur | 1999
For most of his life, Pajaro's confidence has been trampled by just about everyone in town. His best friend, Lopecito, works at a slaughterhouse and often drowns the reality of his dead-end job with alcohol. Together, in a town where they are outcasts and suffer the degredation of the of the locals, they set out to claim their fame in the Guiness Book of World Records by beating the record for continuous bicycling. With the encouragement of Lopecito, Pajaro, an amateur cyclist, is determined to overcome the emotional and physical obstacles of this challenge and regain his self-respect. The huge weight of acceptance, glory and redemption riding on his shoulders will now be riding on two wheels.
