Additional Info

Here is a powerful folktale about an old man's struggle with pain and death. Don Viejo is hated by all in his poor Mexican village, except for Maria who welcomes the nine pesos he spends when he limps painfully to her cafe each morning. This day he strides in bursting with the strength and vigor of a young man and he enacts an astounding story: at a crossroads at midnight he bargained with the Devil and was magically transported back in time to a nightclub in Mexico City where he experienced one moment of genuine love. He tells Maria he has outwitted the devil but there is one more twist in this lyrical play of love and memory.
